Pete's Battle with ALS

This disease has hit our family twice now (Familial ALS) my mother in law (passed 9 years ago from ALS) and now my husband has been diagnosed with it .And it can also affect my children and grandchildren. I know there are alot of you who do not know what ALS (Lou Gerhigs Disease) I will keep it short and sweet, but have to warn you it isnt pretty, your muscles die, you lose the ability to speak, your hands curl up, you lose the ability to swallow and even blinking your eyes. Its a very cruel disease, its takes you from independence to total dependence. 
This will be going for medical equipment,physical therapy, medication ,speech device, to help with dr bills , any surgical procedures needed and hospice (will be coming at a later date)


 Thank you so much for your support.
With love Petes wife
