Project ALS Family
Advocate, Washington D.C.
My dad was diagnosed with ALS in 2013 and without skipping a beat, he immediately started researching and trying to enroll in whatever clinical trials he could with the mindset that even if he did not benefit from them, the information gathered would help someone else. This pure altruism in the face of such tragedy is what makes my dad so special. Like father like daughter, because I cannot sit around and wait for this horrifying disease to take my dad. Within the first six months of his diagnosis, I set and achieved a goal of raising $10,000 for ALS research. While there are many worthy and inspiring ALSrelated organizations and charities, I chose to partner with Project ALS because of their aggressive, multi-faceted approach to finding a treatment and cure for ALS. Project ALS is a special organization because of their commitment to targeted, strategic research and their ever-present optimism that an answer is just around the corner. While I wish the need for Project ALS didn’t exist, I am honored to join such an amazing organization and family.
