Get Tex Moving!
My father-in-law, David Kurt McClain, resides right here in New Haven and currently has ALS. A native of Texas, David has been living with ALS for close to 12 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 Ice Bucket Challenge to 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!
Our ultimate goal is to get an ALS van that will allow David to get going and get moving!
The van will allow David easier access to doctors appointments, attending church and being able to be at more family functions! David has such an amazing attitude on life. Having this van will allow him to impact so many more people!
If you would like to get in direct contact with David or of you have any questions, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hearing your story has inspired me to keep my positive attitude while going through my health issues. God bless u and ur family.
Stay strong brother.
Best wishes my friend! My 13 year old took the ice bucket challeng after we saw yours. So after our challenge today, we took a leap of faith and donated to a stranger who touched our hearts. :) ♡ Thank you for you video! :) Best wishes now and always.... The Grindleys.
