Dolores Collett Memorial fund

My mom has been battling the affects of ALS since the beginning of 2016, although was not diagnosed until January of 2017. Since then this disease has robbed her of her ability to walk, use her hands, talk and even eat comfortably. She became trapped in her body and although her passing breaks all of our hearts, we know she's in a better place. Her wish was to donate her body to science, yet the local research universities had lost funding and were no longer doing research. I am setting up this page as a place for everyone that is asking "how can I help" to help the family with memorial expenses. The remainder will go to help fund one of the tri-state area ALS research programs. My mom was such a giving person, that's really how she showed us she loved us. Thank you in advance for returning that giving spirit.
