ALS Walk In Long Branch (Your Support Needed)

By: Justin Sullivan/Getty Images News

The brilliant British physicist, Stephen Hawking, suffers from it.

And it’s one of the most cruel diseases that a person can contract.

It can also strike anyone at anytime.

It’s amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS.

According to the ALS website: “Often referred to as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive, fatal neuromuscular disease that slowly robs the body of its ability to walk, speak, swallow and breathe. The life expectancy of an ALS patient averages 2 to 5 years from the time of diagnosis.”

I have a friend who’s going to be part of a walk to help raise funds to support people in the community who have ALS as well as spread awareness about finding a cure for this very debilitating and deadly disease, and I want to share the information about it and ask you to please help in any way you can by supporting her fund-raising efforts.

The Long Branch walk takes place on May 20, 2012.

To donate on behalf of my friend, Anne DeGennaro, who’s walking and needs your help to reach her goal, please visit her personal fundraising page.

Remember, no amount is too small!

Thank you so much for lending a hand!
