As many of you are aware, Tony Inderrieden was diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease) this past fall at the age of 33. It was devastating news to his family, Amy Hosking Inderrieden and their two boys, Anthony (14) and Peyton (9). 'ALS, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, a progressive neurodegenerative disease that causes muscle weakness, paralysis and ultimately respiratory failure.' This disease that has currently taken the movement of his left arm and weakened his other arm and both legs. It has also started to take a toll on his breathing. There is no cure for ALS.
As as long as I've known Amy, which feels like an eternity, she has overcome every obstacle life threw at her. They have never been known to ask for help, but at this time, they could really use all of the help we could give.
Tony has been unable to work for months and has been participating in a medical trial. Amy has had to take off of work to be with Tony during his weekly visits. As the disease progresses they will need to make renovations to their home to accommodate Tony's care. They will have to renovate the bathroom as well as install a stairlift. All of this plus the enormous cost of medical care, even after insurance.
Anything you you can do to help out Tony, Amy and their boys would be extremely appreciated. Prayers, positive vibes, good juju, whatever it is you believe in or your monetary donation are all welcome and of course appreciated!
Let's show them all of our support!
*We are also planning on setting up a benefit, hopefully sometime in late May.
