John & Andrea Heil's Fundraiser

Several months ago, it wasn't uncommon to see something called "The Ice Bucket Challenge" on the Internet.  It increased awareness about a horrible disease called ALS, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, which is also referred to as Lou Gehrig's disease.  While the Ice Bucket Challenged helped greatly to raise donations to develop a cure, the message that was being sent was a little bit closer to home for our family.

John Heil was diagnosed with ALS shortly before the Ice Bucket Challenge hit mainstream media.  This made the challenge that much closer to our hearts.

This disease has forced John into early retirement from work and his wife Andrea has had to reduce her hours at work to be able to give him the care that he needs.

I have never met two more heartfelt and giving people in my life that are deserving of so much more than the hand they were dealt.  They are doing the best that they can with what they have...  and even though they would never ask for it.  They need help.  Renovations to their house, medical bills, and anything else that can improve the quality of life for these two people. 

Together, we have the ability to impact an individual's life forever.  Anything will help, and prayers have the power to accomplish miraculous things...

Thank you and God Bless.
