My father in law, Ken Murray, was recently diagnosed with Bulbar ALS and his sister, Carol Megivern, passed away this year from ALS. I worry for their families and future generations. From what we are told, ALS doesn't have a cure, but there are known causes for some types of ALS.
I ask that those who haven't donated yet, have plans to donate or have donated already but want to do more, to consider donating to a family with ALS. Most or all insurance companies refuse to cover essential items needed for someone living with ALS. One vital medical need for Kenny is a ventilation machine to assist with his breathing. It's about $1500 a month and his healthcare provider has declined his request for coverage. It really is a shame.
I hope that those reading this would consider donating to families effected and living with ALS and thank you for taking the time to read this!
