Looking for Help

Dear Maggie,
I feel like I know you since I know Dan and you know Dan and 1 and 1= THREE. I visited a man with ALS for a year while he was in a nursing home. I came with an alphabet board and **** would make a "noise" when I arrived at the right letter. It was slow, but it worked. **** died and I so admired his courage to be locked up in a body that doesn't work with your good and right mind.
God bless you for this work and good things to you always.
I will send a donation by mail.

Be well dear Maggie.

Gene Rosen

    Hello All -

    I am a frequent visitor on the Wall, although I don't always post. I have seen how kind and generous that Wallies can be so I'm coming here for some help.

    I am trying to gather sponsors for a walk that I am participating in on August 6th in Dunkirk, NY. It is the billy mead 5K run/walk for research (www.billymeadals5krun.com). This walk is near and dear to my heart as Billy Mead was my uncle, who passed away a few years ago from ALS also known as Lou Gehrig's disease.

    My Uncle Billy was a great man - everyone who met him, loved him. Unfortunately, his life was cut short due to this tragic disease. I never once saw him angry after his diagnosis. He wanted to fight this disease so along with family and friends, he started this race six years ago in an effort to raise money for ALS research. To date, this event has raised close to a half million dollars for ALS research. Proceeds from our event go mainly to Project ALS (www.projectals.org), a national charity that focuses on research to finding a cure for ALS. A small part of our proceeds go to a fund that helps people in the Chautauqua County (New York State) area living with ALS.

    Unfortunately, I don't have a way to accept donations online, but checks could be mailed to:

    Thank you all.

    MRL...

    Since you are not known here and as we wish to protect the integrity of this sight, If you know Dave DaMico in Dunkirk, it is best that you go thru him and have Dave contact me Mike T. Empire Mechanical so we can verify your Charity request. It's not that we don't feel, but to send checks is something that needs credibility to proceed. Please contact Dave (DaMico Heating/Cooling) with your request and have him call me. "Chico" is a good man and lives in Dunkirk so I am sure you have met. After that You will still need permission from Dan Holohan, the founder of this wonderful site to continue.

    Thanks for your time,...

    Mike T, Empire Mechanical, Buffalo, NY

    and my blessing, and she'll soon have my check, Mike. Thanks for watching out for all of us.

    For those who don't know, Maggie IS ECR International. She's also got a few relatives who play a part. ;-)

    Thanks to everyone who will help out with this.
    Retired and loving it.

    ALS

    Thank you for your kind words, Gene and for your willingness to help. ALS is really a terrible disease and I appreciate you sharing your story of you experience with the disease. I'm sorry that your friend lost his battle - I hope that someday there will be a cure for ALS.
