Please Help Us Find a CureLaura C. Ada, Oklahoma
This horrible disease took my mom after only three years of her being diagnosed. We had never heard of it before, and it took us by surprise of how fast it progressed. ALS affects not only the person but also everyone involved. My mom was the most energetic, healthy person I knew, and it took her at the young age of 49. There aren't many organizations or helpful clinics in Oklahoma for this, and we were forced to put her in a nursing home until she passed. Please help us find a cure for this disease so somebody else's mom doesn't have to suffer the way my mom had to.
