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
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 *But any donation will be much appreciated After donating please print out receipt or email as confirmation to present at the hotel for entry into the event.
