George Schreppel ALS Fund

George’s family and friends are uniting to help raise money to help with his battle against ALS. Your support, in any form, is incredibly appreciated and helpful. 

George was diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig's disease, in August 2014 and has recently stopped working and gone on disability to take advantage of his current quality of life. ALS is a terminal neuromuscular disease with no known cure. It affects voluntary muscles, eventually leading to muscle weakening, wasting, twitching, and an inability to move the arms, legs, and other areas of the body, including speech and breathing ability. While George still has his strength, symptoms are worsening, specifically affecting his ability to use his hands. Eventually, the disease will spread to his legs, and ultimately, his breathing. 

George, 57 in January, lives in Williamsport, PA with his wife of 30 years, Tammy, and his daughter Brittany. His son and daughter-in-law, Corey and Danielle, reside in Saint Paul, Minnestoa. He is a graduate of Mansfield University and a member of the Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity. George is an avid fly fisherman, enjoys early-80’s funk music (this is not a joke), and is the most dedicated father and husband a family could ask for.

The home George and his wife Tammy have lived in for nearly 30 years needs renovating to be ADA certified - mainly to add a first-floor bathroom with wheelchair access. The estimated cost for this renovation is between $9,000 - $12,000, with donated labor. Eventually, there will also be a need for a wheelchair and a handicap-accessible vehicle. Any additional funds raised will help with other miscellanous medical expenses and procedures.

While we are all in good spirits and being proactive for the future, the immediate financial burden can be overwhelming and any help, even spreading the word, is appreciated more than you could ever know.
