I could spend all damn day talking about the inspiring stories of people living with ALS. They just truly amaze me. Especially having gone through the same situation with a loved one, it helps me connect with their struggle, their fear, but also their joy.
ALS patients are living their life with no regrets and enjoying every single day. And I am hopeful that we will find treatments or, even better, a cure for this disease soon so that they can continue to enjoy every single day.
Looking back on this experience with Team Challenge ALS, I wouldn’t change a thing. I’ve had the privilege of spreading awareness of the disease, honoring my grandmother’s memory, and getting a chance to meet new people and hear their stories. Since I didn’t have a chance to share all of them over the past few weeks, here’s a running list so you can check them out for yourself:
Read about Eric, Wes, Beth, Doc and Dora
Read about Norm, Bill, Luis, Ted, Donald, Gene, Margot and Sheryl
