Project ALS Family
My name is Lacy Drissi and I am an artist/t-shirt designer. My beautiful mother Patricia Livingston, an artist and event planner, died on March 16, 2011 from Bulbar ALS. It took four years and 37 doctors nationwide to finally diagnose her with the disease, but by this time of diagnosis she could no longer speak, walk or write. Expressing herself was everything to her and ALS robbed her of her gifts at a young 61 years old. She never got the chance to tell me her thoughts on what it was like living with ALS, nor how to go on without her, for she was always positive that she would beat whatever it was that she was stricken with. It is my mission in life to find a cure for this horrible and gross disease, and I chose Project ALS because I believe this truly amazing organization will help us get there. Knowing that at this very moment, others are going through the exact same experience that she and we had as a family inspires me to keep painting. I am committed to donate 10% of all my painting and t-shirts sales to Project ALS until there is a cure. Period.
