Support the Stratton Family Dealing with ALS

Hi, my name is Alaina and I'm fundraising for my sister, Diana, and brother-in-law, Jesse to buy a wheelchair-accessible van. They've been married for 13 years and live with their two kids, Eloise (age 9) and Wesley (age 7), in Holmen, Wisconsin. After some unexplained falls last summer, Jesse was diagnosed with ALS at the young age of 39. Their daily lives have changed dramatically since then as Jesse is unable to work and requires assistance in all of the simple tasks we take for granted.

Diana is a middle school teacher so the Stratton's spend every summer going on road trips, swimming, camping, and exploring the midwest as a family. The time off school this summer is more precious than ever before. A wheelchair-accessible van will allow them to continue this tradition and make memories this summer that they will cherish forever. Thank you for your generosity!
