Surely by now, you all have heard that our friend, brother and teacher Kevin Thompson has been diagnosed with a very serious debilitating muscle disease. To show our support a fundraiser is being held to raise money and donations in which 100% of funds will go to his rising medical expenses not covered by insurance.

Lou Gehrig's disease, also called amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), causes the nerve cells in certain regions of your brain and spinal cord to gradually die. Eventually, people who have Lou Gehrig's disease (ALS) lose the ability to move their limbs and the muscles needed to move, eat, speak and breathe.

Doctors don't know what causes Lou Gehrig's disease, and the disease can't be cured. Although doctors can't reverse the progression of Lou Gehrig's disease, advances in treatment mean that many who have the disease live longer than they did in the past. Each year about 5,000 Americans are newly diagnosed with ALS, and about 20,000 Americans have the disease.

Please help us as we support Grandmaster Kevin Thompson and the celebration of his many accomplishments and his life-long mission of serving others.

In addition to this amazing fundraising event, we are asking family, friends and colleagues to support the fundraiser of this legendary man by donating money to this online fundraising drive.
Recommended donation: $50
