Unfortunately, he is still fighting this battle and needs our support once again. Recently, the disease has been attacking his heart muscles, causing painful heart attack-like symptoms, including chest pain and shortness of breath.
We would like to ask your assistance with a donation or if you cannot afford a donation, simply sharing this post so we can raise the $2,500 necessary for a scooter lift for Jerry.
The Jerry Rivero Fund is a nonprofit organization that is devoted to fight for the advancement of treatment and a cure for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, and Primary Lateral Sclerosis (PLS) through awareness promotion and education encouragement and to provide continuous support by lessening the distress of the individuals with these illnesses.
Jerry Rivero has been battling this disease since February 2010 when he decided to seek medical attention. Because so little is known of this disease, it took numerous tests with various doctors to finally diagnose him with ALS Lou Gherig's disease. Now, after getting his diagnosis, Jerry is ready to help those who are struggling along with him and may not be able to afford medical attention. Jerry plans on continuously supporting, educating and creating awareness.
