Over 30,000 people are living with A.L.S. today , a disease that causes a progressive degeneration of motor neurons in the body affecting voluntary muscle control. Those affected eventually lose their livelihood, their independence and ultimately their lives.
We have started this group to raise money to help a dear friend of ours who has been recently diagnosed with ALS. Every dollar we raise will help with any expenses now or later that he and his family may endure during treatment or in their daily lives.
Dr. Andy was diagnosed with ALS in March of 2011 at the age of 36. He and his wife Teresa, who me at University of Northern Iowa, have been married for over 10 years. They have a Great Dane, Minnie, who was their first baby and now their little joy Flynn. (Minnie and Flynn get along very well as you can see.)
Dr. Andy is a chiropractor and due to the progression of ALS has had to discontinue working due to the physical demands of chiropractic. Dr. Andy has been full time in a wheel chair for several months and has recently had a feeding tube placed due to difficulty swallowing. He still enjoys watching the Cardinals beat the Cubs, the Packers beat the Bears and of course watching his son grow up. Flynn is now 3 years old and keeps getting bigger. Follow us on facebook for updated pictures.
Thank you very much for supporting this cause, we just don't know when or how quickly this disease will continue to progress and how much of a burden it will put on Andy, Teresa, Minnie and Flynn.
