Mimi's ALS Care

Donation protected
Hi, my name is Mimi and I am fundraising for my ALS care. ALS is a neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord, stopping the muscles from functioning. There is no cure. I lived a very active lifestyle, with bike riding as my favorite hobby. Due to my ALS, I stopped walking in July 2023. My loaned electric wheelchair allows my movement. I have limited usage in my right hand. My left hand is no longer functional. The tongue is a muscle, so my speech is more difficult to understand as my ALS progresses. Things will progressively worsen.

My caregiving costs range from $170 to $238 daily. Additionally, a private caregiver who costs $300 per week. There are also bills for transportation to and from hospital. My husband is unable to work due to his kidney failure and diabetes. So any amount donated is beneficial and greatly appreciated.
