The ALS Association

My Boyfriend Is My Hero

Pamela H. Wilmer, Texas

We pray every day for a cure for ALS. This June my boyfriend has lived with ALS for 17 years. We live every day together as if it's our last. I'm telling his story because  not only as his girlfriend but his caregiver I pray every day that they find a cure for ALS. I know so many people live with ALS,  some who have family and some who don't. I know that there may never be a cure for ALS or for any of the other diseases that take the people we hold so close to hearts. But as a family, we take the good with the bad, and we stand side by side. I almost lost my boyfriend this past April not to ALS but from a ulcer but because I give it to God he is here today with me. So for as long as I have a breath in me, and I can still keep going, I will make sure I do what ever I can to help find a cure for ALS not only for my boyfriend but for all the other men and women who live with ALS.  I WEAR BLUE AND WHITE FOR MY HERO..
