The ALS Association

Please Find a Cure!

Kieysa P. Tallahassee, Florida

Hi my name is Kieysa Paul, I am 22 years old. I would like to take the time out to share my experience with the disease ALS. At the age of 16, I rushed my father to the hospital while he was crying in pain. He was holding his chest and I was scared of what was happening. This was the beginning of a heartache. Not one hospital diagnosed him. At the age of 17 my daddy was diagnosed with Lou Gehrigs disease, and from that day on I started losing my daddy. He was unable to talk, walk, eat, and he got smaller than me. My father got a feeding tube inserted and a few weeks he passed away during my senior year, and 2 months before my 18th birthday. Please find a cure! Sincerely, A Daddys girl.
