Hello, my name is Chad Watson and this is my Dad Steve Brock.  I am setting up this account because my Dad was recently diagnosed with (ALS) better known and Lou Gehrig's disease.  This was devastating news for me and my entire family.  My Dad has been my hero for so long.  He has served his community as a firefighter and Paramedic for 40 years.  My Dad recently had to cut his career short and unknowingly worked his final shift as a Flight Paramedic after receiving the diagnosis.  My Dad is a great Father, Grandfather, Husband and Son.  

Currently there is no cure for ALS and everyones progression rate can vary.  This disease is very debilitating and in a short time my Dad will begin to lose the ability to use his arms/ legs and eventually the ability to speak/eat or breathe on his own.  This fund will assist my Dad with future medical costs as well as the ability to cary out a couple Bucket list items in his short time left with us.  If you wish to help out with making my Dad's final days on this earth as stress free for him and provide him with some assistance with this very difficult time it would mean the world to me and my family.

Thank you to everyone

I LOVE YOU DAD!!!!!!31164650_1531114688720201_r.jpeg31164650_1531114725667724_r.jpeg31164650_1531114859515007_r.jpeg

Hello Everyone,

Just wanted to provide an update. My Dad was in for a surgery today for a port placement for future infusion treatments. We started this infusion request on July 27th and we have finally been able to get this surgery and treatment approved and started. Today was a very stressful day but the surgery was successful. The treatment he will hopefully be starting next week is called Radicava and has been shown to slow the progression of ALS for some patients significantly. This is what we and my Dad are hopeful for as it would provide him more quality time with everyone. Just wanted to reach out on behalf of my Dad and Family and truly thank everyone from the bottoms of our hearts for all of the support.

Hello Everyone,

First of all I want extend a huge thank you from me, my family and my Dad. The support all of you have shown has been overwhelming and has truly touched all of our hearts especially my Dad’s. We are currently spending a week in South Lake Tahoe as a family checking off some bucket list vacation time with our family. Some exciting news is hopefully very soon Dad will be starting some infusion treatments that have showed some signs of slowing the progression of the disease, which means some more quality time hopefully. Continue to keep my Dad in your prayers and again your support is truly amazing and we are forever grateful.

Love,

Steve, Leanne, Birranda, Ryan and Chad +Family
