Personal Amount Raised
Personal fundraising goal: $4,000.00
Welcome to Howard's Page
I was diagnosed with ALS in November 2022, after nearly a year of searching for answers to loss of mobility in my hands, along with unexplained weight loss and other concerns. It's a blow to find you have a rare disease with no cure, but I have incredible support from Mandy and our two daughters, Savannah & Tessa, who help me to maintain a positive outlook. I've received lots of help from Kaiser's ALS Clinic team in San Rafael, Team Gleason, and The Golden West Chapter of the ALS Association.
- The average life expectancy of an ALS patient is two to five years from the time of diagnosis.
- ALS can strike anyone. Presently there is no known cause of the disease. Someone you know or love may die from ALS unless a cure is found.
- Caring for a loved one with ALS costs on average of $200,000 each year. Again, without help from the ALS Association, treatments and care would be impossible to afford!
