Standing for Lisa

You may know ALS ( Lou Gehrig's Disease) because of the Ice Bucket Challenge, but if you don't: it is an extremely debilitating disease with no known cure. Lisa Portelli was diagnosised with ALS on June 6, 2017.
Please help us raise money for Lisa and Jim Portelli, as they travel out of the USA, to participate in some of the most groundbreaking scientific research and treatments available.
Time is of essence. Her progression is unprecedented.
Any and all donations will provide Lisa and Jim financial support for the out of pocket cost of the medical treatments she will undergo, the plane airfairs, and the hotel accommodations that they will incur as they participate in 3 round-trips abroad.
