Despite all of our efforts Chad's decline is still rapid. FULL STORY BELOW.

On December 5th 2016, just three months after having our first child River, our world came crashing down with the diagnosis of Chads ALS (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis).

6 months prior to this Chad had been experiencing troubles with his hands and was rapidly loosing strength and mobility in both arms. Soon after the first signs of onset Chad is now unable to complete simple everyday tasks but most painful of all, hold his baby boy.


After being blindsided by the prognosis of ALS, Chad, myself and The Kendrick's took to the internet frantically searching for a way to save our Chaddy. Turns out there is a small percentage of people living with this "incurable" disease, people are stopping the progression, and in some cases even reversing symptoms. So we decided if anyone can do it, our Chad can.


We were lucky enough with the success and genorosity of our first GO FUND ME campaign to be able to seek help from a team of people including ND's, MD's and scientists. One particular scientist in Montreal had previous success with ALS and other neurological diseases and started an extensive protocol to try and rid Chads body of heavy metals and toxins in hope to slow down the progression of this debilitaing disease.


But here we are two months on from being in Montreal and 5 months on from diagnosis and the disease is still rapidly progressing. The disease is taking its toll on Chads body, now effecting his legs and his breathing.  He now has to sleep with a bipap (breathing machine) to assist pumping air into his lungs while lying down.

Having said all of the above, the guy is amazing!  He still has a smile on his face and is craking jokes. His spirits are high, his attitude positive and he truly still believes we can beat this disease and live the life we have always dreamed.


Chad left on Wednesday the 3rd of May to start Stem Cell Treatment in California with Dr Steenblock. At Dr Steenblocks clinic they are experiencing some great successes in slowing and in some cases stopping the progression of ALS.
The clinic has expressed that for Chad to have the best chance at survival he needs 4 weeks worth of stem cells at $20 000 USD per week therfor our goal is set $100 000 CAD which will get us to our $80 000 USD for Chads treatment.
This treatment is obviously unobtainable to us, we still have enough money for the first week and 1/2 but we are desperate to try and raise the rest of the funds to keep Chad in treatment for as long as is necessary and give him the best possible chance of survival.

We thankyou for your ongoing love and support, every donation big or small is beyond appreciated.

Erin, River and The Kendrick's

I was diagnosed of ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) 2013 in Parkland hospital, Dallas, i was given Rilutek (riluzole) to help my symptoms. In August 2014 my symptoms worsened, with no hope of a cure from my doctor and his medical team i looked out for an alternative treatment. I read on a website about Natural Herbal Gardens and their successful herbal treatment for ALS, i immediately contacted them via their website and purchased the ALS herbal remedy. I used the herbal remedy for 9 weeks, all my symptoms including difficulty walking, weakness in legs and arm, slurred speech etc miraculously disappeared, my speech is understandable now, its unbelievable, visit www. naturalherbalgardens. com. I had stopped working since i was diagnosed of ALS, i resumed working in 2016, I have control of my body ones again!

Have you ever thought about genome sequencing for your ALS? I thought it could help you determine your options.
