Project ALS Family
Deborah and Madison Silver
In 2006 Marjie Berman Block, our sister and aunt, was diagnosed with ALS. Immediately, fighting this fatal disease became our family's mission. So far Madison and her brother Spencer have raised over $100,000 for ALS research through their projects: Miracle for Marjie, hopeheARTbyMadison.com, and Jam for the Cure. Deborah donates 100% of the proceeds from Pure Silver, her CD, towards the cure.
As mother and daughter, we teamed up to launch SLAM ALS, a worldwide online challenge for ALS Awareness Month this May. Building on the viral success of the Ice Bucket Challenge, we are asking people to “SLAM” on social media,“SEND” a donation and “CHALLENGE” their family, friends and followers to do the same. 100% of all funds raised will be allocated for research through Project ALS. By joining with others, we hope to slam the door on ALS forever!
