Daniel's Fight with life and ALS

Hello out there!!  

This is Gabe from Little Rock, AR.  I'm creating this site with the help and support of some close friends  to assist one of the Greatest Men we've ever been around...his name is Daniel Young.

In March of 2014, DY was diagnosed with ALS at the age of 39 and at that time the prognosis for life expectancy was less than a year.  It's now December 2015 and he is still fighting this horrible disease...but we expected nothing else from such a strong man!

Over the past year, he has dedicated all of his time and energy to spending quality time with his family while fighting this terrible disease that effects so many.

As the disease has progressed, DY now needs 24/7 care and that care comes with a significant cost.

DY does receive monthly disability, but the majority of that money will go to support a family and that doesn't leave much for day-to-day care needs and astronomical medical expenses.

Daniel is a Christian, a Dedicated Father, a Son, a Razorback Fan and quite frankly one of the best friends that our group has ever been around.  He's never asked for anything in his life and has usually been one of the first to give to someone in need.

If you could find it in your heart to help out, or at a minimum keep him in your thoughts and prayers...we would greatly appreciate it and I know DY would too.

If you want to read a little more into his story, I've attached a link that gives a little more insight on his life and thoughts of living with this disease:
