Angela dedicated her entire life to helping others as a school social worker, former PTA president, a cheerleading coach and a Girl Scout leader. She is wife to Eloy and mother to Gabriella (18).
Angela’s condition currently requires a home health aide for 12 hours a day along with help from her family in order to perform basic tasks (i.e. showering, eating and getting dressed). Within only two years, Angela has lost the ability to make most voluntary movements. Currently she is being fed through a feeding tube, and uses an eye gaze as her only form of communication. She requires the assistance of a Hoyer lift in order to shower and use the bathroom. A handicap accessible van is needed in order for her to leave home.
Not only is ALS one of the most physically devastating diseases but also financially draining. On average an ALS patient pays between $52,000 - $100,000 annually on just home health care. If you can find it in your heart to ease the financial strain on Angela and her family, they would be greatly relieved and would allow them to supply the necessary home care Angela needs. Thank you in advance for your generosity and support.
