Final Push for the Walk To Defeat ALS®!!!!!

Hi Everyone! The Walk to Defeat ALS is in 2 weeks!!!! So I'm making the final push to raise funds.

By now, you've all heard about Mrs. red floyd, and her battle with ALS, otherwise known as Lou Gehrig's Disease, here and here

ALS is a terrible disease, robbing the victim of EVERYTHING but their mind. In some sense, it's almost a reverse Alzheimer's.... In Alzheimer's, the body is fine, but the mind is gone. With ALS, the body goes, but the mind is fine.

As a character on a TV show once put it:

ALS is a death sentence, Chloe - you know that. And it's not gonna be pretty. It'll start with muscle weakness and cramping, then I'll have trouble walking, talking, feeding myself, and eventually full paralysis will set in but my mind will be unaffected. I'll be a prisoner trapped inside my own body.

The purpose of the Walk To Defeat ALS® is to raise funds for research for treatments and cures, to provide services to its victims. I know I've been flogging this for what seems like forever, but it's a very important cause.

Also, consider, ALS strikes vets at a rate of almost 3 times that of the civilian populace, so if you or a loved one are in the services, consider it in your enlightened self-interest.

More food for thought:

So, in any case, I am asking for your help. Please go to my website at http://webgw.alsa.org/goto/scott.neu and make a donation if you possibly can.

Also, props to ladybug and blast21dave for joining Sue's Squad and walking with us!!!!

And as always, thanks to Rev and to SBN for letting me fundraise for this cause here.
