As you all know, Charlie Wedemeyer, my precious husband was diagnosed with ALS at the age of 30 and told he had about a year to live! Praise God, he lived 34 years!! I am hugely impressed and encouraged by all that The ALS Association Golden West Chapter is doing here in California and in Hawaii!! We understand the ravages of this horrific death sentence!! Back then, there was no support. No one to call! Few Doctors knew anything about ALS! We were blindsided and felt disconnected from life. Our lives were abruptly turned upside down

WHY I WALK
Thank you for helping me reach my Walk to Defeat ALS® fundraising goal! The Walk to Defeat ALS® is very important to me, as it raises funds to support those affected by ALS and to spread awareness of the urgency to find effective treatments and cures.
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive, fatal neuromuscular disease that slowly robs the body of its ability to walk, speak, swallow and breathe. The life expectancy of a person with ALS averages 2 to 5 years from the time of diagnosis. ALS can strike anyone, and presently there is no known cause or cure.
A person with ALS becomes physically locked-in as the disease progressively paralyzes the body. The key to UNLOCK ALS begins with us.
Please consider walking with me or sponsoring me. With your help, we will be able to make a difference in the lives of people affected by this disease. Click or tap on VIEW MY TEAM above to join, or on DONATE to make a donation.
The past few years have brought incredible advancements in ALS research, expanded access to care for people living with ALS, and enabled legislation that impacts the quality of life of people with ALS and their families. We can't stop now! It is only together that we will defeat ALS!
