Michael Watermans fight against ALS

Michael, a father of 2, grandfather of 3, brother, son, and loving husband has been diagnosed with ALS. Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) other wise widely known as "Lou Gehrigs disease" is a progressive neurological disorder with an unknown cause. This disease effects the nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord that control muscles, which ultimately leads to neuron death and loss of muscle function. This disease slowly robs the body's ability to walk, swallow and even breathe. There is no known cure of ALS and the disease is 100% fatal.

Once someone is diagnosed with this disease, the average life expectancy is 2-5 years. Physical therapy, speech therapy, medications and further care is needed for people diagnosed with ALS. House modifications are also needed to be made to accommodate this illness. The treatments related to this disease are very expensive, and our family is branching out to you to help in Michaels fight against ALS, for a better quality of life.  He has been accepeted into one of New York states accrediated ALS treatment centers for treatment and clinical trials. 

Please help make a difference in Michaels fight. Any funds raised come with great appreciation. No amount is too small, and please share this across any social media you may have.

Thank you!
