Anyone’s Life Story: ALS

ALS Awareness Month 2009

MDA's "Anyone's Life Story"

I have been chosen to be one of the 30 people with ALS nationwide to be featured in the "Anyone's Life Story" campaign. Here is a description from MDA:

"May is ALS Awareness Month.  In anticipation of this opportunity to educate the American public about ALS, the Muscular Dystrophy Association's (MDA) ALS Division is planning a national month-long campaign entitled "ALS: Anyone's Life Story". 

Each day in May, MDA's Web sites will feature one individual with ALS, along with a photo and short story, providing a snapshot of their life. ALS is a terrible disease, and raising awareness of the disease and the people it affects is vitally important. ALS affects women, men, mothers, sons and friends. ALS, unfortunately, can become "Anyone's Life Story".

"Anyone's Life Story" will present snapshots of individuals with ALS in a month-long, Web-based awareness campaign. MDA will promote the series nationwide, and with media outlets in your local area." 

I am honored to have been chosen to help raise awareness!
