Fighting ALS with Keith

44163290_1576600665579610_r.jpeg44163290_1576600685498486_r.jpegKeith was diagnosed with ALS almost 4 years ago. While close family and friends know what a fighter he’s been, we recently took hit we didn’t see coming. 

While visiting family in Colorado, Keith ended up in ICU with Pneumonia and Septic Shock. With his true warrior spirit, he was off Life Support in just 2 days but remained in ICU for 21 days total. Mom and dad, with some help from friends and family, stayed with Keith around the clock. 

During his stay, Keith had to get a tracheotomy and feeding tube....both of which will be permanent now. Not fun but necessary for his quality of life.

On Saturday, November 30, Keith landed at Arlington Municipal Airport via an Angel Flight. We finally had him home! To date, he still remains in the hospital but he’s getting stronger every day. His breathing is more CPAP than ventilator these days and we’re hopeful with a trach shield  he’ll be able to breathe some on his own. 

As you you can imagine the medical expenses and cost of the medical transport have made quite an impact with our family. We’d love to alleviate any stress this may be causing. This is a hard time of the year to ask for money.....but if you can, in the spirit of giving, please help us support Keith’s fight!
