Regine Pringle passed away on October 17, 2023. She was dearly loved and cherished by her daughter, Fran Finney, and Fran’s husband, Hal, in California; her daughter, Heidi Cahen, and her husband, Philippe, in France; her daughter, Andrea Ransdell, and her husband, Fred, in California; and her son, Steve Wetter, and his wife, Cindy, in New Jersey; as well as by her grandchildren Jason, Michèle, Erin, Daniel, Rachel, Jacob, Sharon, Marisa, and Hannah, and their spouses, Barry and Max, and her two great-grandsons, Alex and Tom.
Regine was a very caring person, and among the many people and causes she made time to help, she lovingly supported Hal and Fran throughout Hal’s ALS progression. She will be sorely missed by her family and friends.
On behalf of Regine's entire family, thank you for your donation to ALS Golden West through the Running Bitcoin Challenge, which is chaired by Fran.
What is ALS?
Often referred to as Lou Gehrig's disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive, fatal neuromuscular disease that slowly robs the body of its ability to walk, speak, swallow and breathe.
Why We Urgently Need Your Help
ALS occurs throughout the world with no racial, ethnic, age, or socioeconomic boundaries.
The average life expectancy of an ALS patient is two to five years from the time of diagnosis.
Every 90 minutes someone in this country is diagnosed with ALS, and every 90 minutes another person will lose their battle against this disease.
There are no known cures and only modestly effective treatments.
Caring for a loved one with ALS costs families an average of $250,000 each year.
Every dollar donated moves us closer to effective treatments and cures for ALS.
