I have recently become aware that Jenny's husband, Erik, has been diagnosed with ALS. There is no cure for ALS at this time. The average lifespan for someone living with ALS is 2-5 years. Erik has been diagnosed for over two years. Time together is valuable.
Jenny is now the main earner for their family, and she is also a wife and mother. She is doing an amazing job at all of these roles, and she has never asked for help. Their family is dealing with considerable challenges and expenses, and when I asked Jenny if she felt that she had support from her friends and family, she said she was very grateful for the meals that had been prepared and provided to her family during this time. It allows them to spend more time together, as Jenny is working full time, and shopping and cooking is more time away.
I would like to raise funds for Jenny's family to purchase meal delivery and anything else that they feel would benefit their family during this time. They are also paying out of pocket for non-prescription natural treatments that are not covered by insurance. These treatments are essential in helping with quality of life and managing the symptoms.
Jenny and her family have set up a fundraiser to find a cure for ALS at als.org, Team Clauson. These funds go towards the greater good of a cure for all, but they do not benefit Jenny's family specifically: http://web.alsa.org/site/TR/Walks/Evergreen?team_id=370559&pg=team&fr_id=13265
This fundraiser is to support Jenny and her family, and each meal provided is time that the Clauson family can be together and share in their day. There may be other needs that can also be met with this fundraiser, like natural remedies and treatments, and other items not covered by insurance, and I hope that we can show Jenny how much we care and appreciate her and what she has given to our community. By giving back, I hope we can give their family a little more time together.
