Hi my sweet family & friends,
Thank you so much for visiting my page. As many of you know, my beautiful Mama was recently diagnosed with ALS. Although this news is incredibly heartbreaking, we know we are not without hope thanks be to God. Life is such a precious gift and we are soaking up every minute we have with our Mama.
With this recent diagnosis, my sisters and I are finding ways to raise awareness (and funds) in order to find a cure for ALS. With that said, I will be participating in The Golden West Chapter of The ALS Association's SoCal Ride and Rally to Defeat ALS. I'm participating to support those affected by Lou Gehrig's Disease and to spread awareness for the urgency to find treatments and cures. I hope you can join me on May 6th. If you can't be there physically to participate, any amount of donation, big or small, will make such a difference.
Thank you in advance for all your prayers, love, support, text messages, calls, etc. It means the world to me, my mama, and family!
Love you all. xo -Lee
