Almost 6 years and Danielson is still, and will always be missed.
Us girls are doing well, and now we can smile with an occasional tear of all the memories that will forever live on in our hearts.
What do you say when you lost your best friend for the last 30 years? I remember Danny asking if I would stay involved with the ALS Association in hopes of finding that cure, the cure we prayed for daily. I would of course always say, shut up, your not going anywhere. Well, on November 15, 2017 Danielson was called home. I so wish the girls and I could tell him face to face how much we loved him, how much we appreciated him, how we miss his sarcasm and the love he gave us. Life has been challenging and us girls miss him so much! What keeps us going is knowing he is whole, no more pain, that he's watching us from above and that we will one day be together again.
This disease took him but not without a great fight. No family should have to endure this horrible disease. There is another husband, wife, father, mother, uncle, aunt, cousin, and or friend, that prays daily for a cure. So with that said, and tissues at hand, let's do this!
Danny's verse he chose to live by...
2 Corinthians 12:9 But He said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness."
Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weakness, so that Christ's power may rest on me.

If you are willing and able, I thank you for helping me reach my Walk to Defeat ALS fundraising goal! This is an exciting opportunity for us to work together to support those affected by Lou Gehrig's Disease and to spread awareness of the urgency to find treatments and a cure.
The past few years have brought incredible advancements in ALS research, expanded access to care for ALS patients, and enabled legislation that impacts the quality of life of patients and their families. WE CAN'T STOP NOW!

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.
