David Kurt McClain, who is on an ‘extended stay’ here in New Haven is currently living with ALS. A native of Texas, David has been living with ALS for close to 15 years now- surpassing the disease's life expectancy by three times! Despite being bed riddon, paralyzed from the shoulders down, and eating from a feeding tube, David never once complains. He is the most positive individual I have ever met. Although he may have limitations, David will never once ask for pity from anyone he meets. He just wants to share his inspirational words!

David had participated in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, numerous walks to defeat ALS and has been part of a national ALS promotional campaign not only spread awareness but to ask the public to show their support through donations as well. With enough support and donations, we can eventually find a cure!

David lives with his wife Donna, who is his full-time caregiver. Once David was began to lose his mobility and ability to care for himself, Donna left her job as a teacher to care for her husband. Donna and David currently live off of David’s social security and disability. Despite David’s circumstance, he does not qualify for state assistance or aid.

Donna and David are grateful for the continued moral support and occasional financial support from church, family and friends.

If you would like to get in direct contact with David or of you have any questions, please contact me at ashleymcclain829@gmail.com.
