One of the most deserving people in the world is in need of support. In November 2015 Ray Desrosiers was diagnosed with a devastating and debilatating disease. ALS, or Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, is a rapid disease that causes muscle weakness, paralysis, and ultimately, respiratory failure. There is no known cure. In just a year, Ray lost almost all mobility and independence.
For anyone that does not know Ray, he is a wonderful, kind and caring. He is someone you can call on in a time of need, always putting family and friends before himself. Truly a person who would give you the shirt off his back without hesitation. He never left home without that contagious smile and remembers everyone he meets. And no man could have a greater love for his family than Ray. Always bragging about his daughters, wife, grandsons, nieces, nephews... The list is endless!
Ray is also very proud and humble. He worked hard as an auto technician to pay his bills and provide for his family. Sadly, in July 2016, Ray was forced to stop working because of his condition. He is doing the best he can to make ends meet. His only wish is to remain at home as his condition progresses. However, his house is not handicap accessible and cannot accomodate his disabilities.
The money raised here will be used for much needed renovations to make his home safe and comfortable for him and needed medical devices.
It is comforting to know so many people have asked to help and support Ray. We are setting up this fund in order to continue to love and support him! Any donation, big or small, is greatly appreciated and will be well utilized.
Thank you so much for the support and warm wishes. We ask that you continue to keep him in your thoughts and prayers. Please also help us spread the word, we hope to reach as many people as possible!
