ALS Terminal Illness #prayformiracle



Dear Friends and Loved Ones,


September of last year, I was diagnosed with a terminal illness. I am a husband, father of three loving kids and have been given a death sentence called ALS. Since then I have declined in health rapidly. I went from being athletic, and hard working person to Cane, to Walker, and Bedbound.

My illness is moving quickly and I am losing all abilities to move. I am completely bed bound unable to leave because I depend on my Electric Wheelchair for any kind of mobility. I am so depressed being stuck in this room knowing my days are numbered. Please pray for me and pray for GOD to give me more time with my babies. Please share my story---ALS is a horrible illness, I would not wish this upon anyone. I am scared and terrified. I don't want to die. I don't want to leave my children alone. They are so little. There is no cure. Please GOD find a cure for me. I am asking for financial help for the medical treatment to enable me to be with my family.  I will need a full time nurse or caregiver. The cost of all this goes way beyond our means. Your donations will be a lifesaver and will help offset the tremendous cost this will incur in order to make it able for me to stay home until the ALS takes my life.

I am at the end of my journey in this world unfortunately I need a handicap van to go out in my chair. I am asking for help getting this as I have been unable to leave my home at all and it makes me so sad to not be able to do anything with my family and be left behind because we cannot afford a van. It is extremely expensive and any little bit will help remodel even a regular van into a handicap one so I can make my final memories with my children.

I am on Oxygen now. I’m not happy about it but it has come to that point that I it’s not a choice. Soon I will not be here and only memories and stories of my loved ones will be what is left of me. Nothing is working to stop progression of the ALS beast. It has stripped me of everything. My love for my children is all I have that makes me fight to go on. I am so upset that I am leaving my little ones and won’t be there to protect them in the future when they are grown and need me the most....tears....


Thank you so much for your donations it means so much to me and it goes beyond words how grateful I feel. Anything that you can give will help. Even sharing this with your friends and getting the word out will be a blessing to me. Please keep me in your prayers as God is the only one now that can cure me through a miracle.


God Bless,


Donald Gage
