IN LOVING MEMORY OF JOSE LUIS ALDAMA (02.25.1967-01.03.2022).
Jose was a kind and humble man who always generously helped others without expecting anything in return, even as he was losing the ability to complete his everyday tasks. Jose was a man of honor, a man of his word, and most importantly a man whose actions always showed pure intentions. Although he knew this disease was terminal, he never gave up hope or gave up praying for a cure. Jose never wanted others to suffer the emotional, financial, and physical despair that ALS put a family through. In his honor please help us in raising awareness for ALS by joining our team! Any donation is greatly appreciated.

A big THANK YOU
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.
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!
