In November of 2015, Michael Romero, a father of 2 and a loving husband of 21 years, was diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) also known as Lou Gehrig's disease and was only given 2 years to live from the diagnosed date. He experienced his first symptom early 2014. ALS is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord giving one no muscular use over time. An average person lives 3-5 years from the first on-set (first symptom). After being forced to let go of his own construction company, it is now getting harder for Michael to do everyday task such as walking. This has taken a huge toll on our family as one but we are staying strong and making the most of everything we can with each other.

There is an NEW experimental treatment in Thailand in which Michael has been approved. Funds are currently being raised in order to help the family with the expenses. An additional $24,000 is needed in order to reach the goal for the NEW treatment.
As his family, We are reaching out to anyone at this time that can help us get ready for this NEXT step of his illness. With the Grace of The Lord we will make it through all the challenges ahead. We appreciate anything anyone can give. My family and I will not stop fighting for my father’s survival.
Thank you, and God bless you all.
