In memory of Kathleen Claire Kenny (KCK) we are having our
2ND ANNUAL KATIE'S CRUSADERS QUALITY OF LIFE FIGHT FUND RAISER for The Joan Dancy and PALS Foundation on September 27, 2014 in South Amboy at the AOH from 6pm to 10pm. There will be music, food, drinks, baskets to bid on, a 50/50 and good people to hang with. A $25 donation either at the door or using this website will get you in on the fun.
Katie was diagnosed in 2008 with ALS and lived with this fatal disease until her death on September 21, 2013. The Joan Dancy Foundation played a tremendous part in our lives during that time with their caring, time, knowledge of the disease, contacts, guidance, support group, and nothing but heart. Without them their would not have been a quality of life for Katie and our family. They were there at every turn in our lives. And they continue to provide other PALS (People with ALS) with the same quality care in Monmouth and Ocean Counties.
There is no cure for ALS and there is no magic pill to make it all better. You lose your ability to be the person you once was like talking, eating, writing, the use of your hands, walking, swallowing, scratching an itch, clearing your throat, hugging, kissing, smiling, bathing, dressing yourself, brushing your teeth. This goes on either for months or many, many years of mental torment until you can't breath anymore.
Please donate whatever you can and share this with your Facebook friends. Let's keep Katie's memory alive and JDPALS so that other families and PALS can have the quality of life they fight for everyday.
Thank you all for your love and support
