Raised by 91 people in 8 months
Hi Everyone! 

My Name is Maile- Derek and Sarahjean are dear friends of mine. I wanted to create a simple platform of support for them during this time. We all appreciate your help.

We have moved our site from Youcaring.com to GoFundMe due to technical issues... But the cause is the same. 

For those of you who are not familiar with this disease, let me share a gentle description.  ALS is a disease of the motor neurons. It is a progressive, neurological disease that leads to muscle weakness, atrophy and aggressive changes throughout the body, 
including the ability to breathe.  ALS is a terminal disease.

Most people live 3 to 5 years after first experiencing symptoms.

There is no cure.

A couple weeks after Derek turned 43 he was diagnosed with ALS.  He just turned 44.

Your support will help this beautiful family be able to afford services, support and equipment that is needed throughout this transitional time. 

We know that you are busy- Thank you for taking the time to help out! 

If you are interested in getting to know Derek and his family a bit better- Please visit:
Standblu.com
where they have created an inspiring blog of their journey.

Thank You for Your Support!
