Help Randel Fight ALS

$60,539 of $60,000 goal

Raised by 500 people in 3 months
Created December 7, 2018
Our brother and dear friend, Randel McCoy (Kenya Garrett), has been battling ALS, commonly referred to as Lou Gherig's Disease for some time now. This degenerative disease hampers nerve cell functionality that controls the movement of muscles.

Randel lost his mom at a young age and was left to be raised by his grandma and uncle. Randel remained a strong-willed and determined man throughout his life enabling him to accomplish his goals. From his superstar athleticism to his remarkable intelligence, Randel is an exceptional human being.  Through the support of his girlfriend, family, and friends, everyone is continually making sure he's able to do whatever it takes to overcome this.

Randel, age 33, was diagnosed in February 2018 and currently works as a teacher's aide and coaches both wrestling and football at Cold Spring Harbor High School. With his positive disposition, Randel continues to live his life to his maximum potential which is a testament to his courage. Randel's charm, wit, and vibrant nature is profoundly infectious and has made the many people around him supremely happy. No matter how bad a situation, Randel is always one to provide relief and levity. We all truly appreciate and grow from his knowledge and unrelenting compassion.

As science and research progress towards curing ALS, treatment, new therapies on the horizon appear to be highly costly. In order for Randel to get the care he needs without financial hardship, funds must be raised. Time is against us. Advances in ALS research are encouraging because there are many people contributing to the fight and working diligently at eliminating this disease.

We're asking, from the bottom of our hearts -- for your donation of any amount. We want Randel to be able to be stress-free throughout this process. Now that there are the resources and platforms to achieve that, it's imperative for you to donate. If you could share this to any and every one you know – we would deeply appreciate it.

Spread the good word, donate and help save a life.
