Project ALS Family
Aileen and Mickey McGrath
Nursery School Teacher & Doctor of Internal Medicine
We have had several fundraisers in our community for Project ALS that have raised over $100,000. We have organized our own walk in the neighborhood where Mickey grew up, we have participated in the Freihofer’s walk, had a Super Bowl Party fundraiser, a bowling party, a party planned by our daughter in Boston, even a lemonade stand run by our niece and nephew. Our children have attended the Project ALS walks and the Mets games. We have had a tremendous response from our community and raised awareness for both the disease and Project ALS. Rather than waiting to die from ALS, Mickey wanted to learn how to live with ALS. The Project ALS family threw us a lifeline and we’re still hanging on.
