Doctors have provided many methods that will lessen the symptoms, but have carried such a burden financially that they have been untried. Intravenous treatments with Immunocal Platinum costs thousands of dollars; my family has carefully selected treatments within the scope that insurance will allow and as much as our budget will cover. My mother is a teacher and my father being a construction laborer, planned to work through old age because they knew that they weren’t going to be financially established for retirement – much less for a terminal disease or for hospice.
ALS has no cure, but will not stop my mom from living life as best as she can nor will it stop my family’s pursuit to make sure she lives and dies with dignity and around people whom she loves. We do, however, still need help to realize our efforts. Would you, dear reader, please donate any amount you can and/or share this campaign to help preserve my mother’s life?
