Bobs ALS fund

My name is Nick, this is my grandpa. His name is Bob and he’s my Father/Best-Friend.  He has been a very hardworking man his entire life and it started with running a grocery store with his father before his adult days where he then worked at General Motors for 30+ years. 2020 has been the hardest year for our family as we got the terrible news that my grandfather was diagnosed with ALS, not just ALS but Bulbar ALS a very very aggressive form of this disease.  Bulbar ALS attacks the muscles that allow you to speak, swallow, and breath first.  He has given up his favorite hobbies that include, Riding his motorcycle, Golfing with his friends,  sitting in the tree stand waiting for that big buck and many other things.  He has lost about 100lbs due to ALS so he is on a feeding tube to get him the nutrients he needs to survive.  My grandmother/his wife Yvonne is the main caretaker of my grandfather.  She is a registered Nurse and works very hard to keep my grandpa happy and healthy.  She has been a fighter of cancer her whole life but has beaten it every time.  The medications/care my grandfather needs to help fight this disease cost a lot of money and with my grandmother only being able to work part time, the funds are hard to obtain.  My grandpa is a strong fighter and we will make it through this fight together. If you’d like to show your support the money donated will be used for medications, supplies and other things to help keep my grandpa fighting longer. Thank you all for taking your time to read this, trying to keep it a surprise for Christmas so if we could try to keep it off of Facebook so they don’t see it❤️ I appreciate every single one of you!
