My Message

Someone very dear to me was diagnosed with ALS and fought like a champion for more than 2 years.  She has now lost her fight. Seeing first hand what this disease does to a loved one and the way it affects friends and family, I decided to get involved with ALS Canada in the hope that no one has to go through any of this. The recent Ice Bucket Challenge was very good to raise ALS awareness, but I want to take it a step further.

My goal is to raise $25,000 for ALS Canada. It will be my pleasure to give my time for free and help further educate anyone who wants to learn about the world of computers and technology. All that I ask in return is that you donate any amount to ALS Canada and help me reach my goal. If all you can afford is $5, I will be $5 closer to reaching my goal. Tax receipts are available for people who donate $20.00 or more.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you for your help and support.

WHAT IS ALS?

"Most people with ALS lose the use of their legs in the first two years of the disease. What would you do, while you still could?" I am showing my support for ALS by participating in this great event and I hope you will too. You can donate to my site and/or choose to participate along with me. Please help us to raise money to find a cure for this devastating disease and support those living with ALS and their families in our community. Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, ALS, is also known as Lou Gehrig's disease, after the famous American baseball player who died of ALS in 1941. ALS is a progressive and ultimately fatal neuromuscular disease. It causes nerve cells to degenerate. These nerve cells control movement by sending electrical impulses to the muscles. When the motor neurons degenerate, the muscles weaken, resulting in paralysis. ALS is a progressive, fatal, neuromuscular disease, which has no known cause, cure or drug therapy of consequence. Individuals who are diagnosed with ALS do not typically survive beyond 3-5 years. This devastating disease slowly robs the individual of the ability to walk, talk, and ultimately, to breathe.  For more information on ALS please visit www.als.ca.
