so i have had mixed feelings about the ALS ice bucket challenge. Was it doing the right thing? Did people understand what they were supposed to do? Do people know anything about ALS other than it's also called Lou Gehrig's Disease? I know I didn't know much about the disease before 2 years ago when my own mother was diagnosed.
So...while the Ice Bucket Challenge is great for the overarching ALS organization, I have a Reverse Ice Bucket Challenge for YOU!
My mother's condition has gotten to a point where it is uncomfortable and difficult to use a standard toilet and shower. The tool she needs is http://www.invacare.com/cgi-bin/imhqprd/inv_catalog/prod_cat_detail.jsp?prodID=6895
and costs about $1000. Normally these tools are provided by medicare and the local ALS Association or Chapter, but they don't have one and by the time the money trickles down from the challenge it may be too late for her.
Here is where YOU come in: You have 2 options:
1. Donate $10 to help buy this chair for her.
2. Dump a bucket of ice water on your head and post the video with #ALS #ALSicebucketchallenge #letsreverseit and I'll throw in $10 for you.
