Bob Taylor, a dear friend, was recently diagnosed with Lou Gehrig's disease or ALS. As many of you know Bob is a world traveler who has spent his life in media and writing about travel. He has been to nearly 70 countries and continues to plan and excute great trips for himself and others.
On a recent trip to Bali with Bob, I noticed his left arm to be somewhat limp and not very useful. Upon further testing he was recently diagnosed with this devastating and physically debilitating disease.
Bob is a very private person and he and his wife lead a normal quiet life however with medical expenses and soon his inability to work, his income from Social Security will only cover 1/3 of his monthly living expenses, not including the medical bills.
As a friend I am setting up this account to assist him in these mounting costs.
