ALS Awareness Event and Fundraiser at the Coliseum on 7/27




Hi everyone. I'm visiting from Halos Heaven to ask a favor. On 7/27, when you guys are hosting the Angels, the A's will be sponsoring an ALS awareness event.

ALS is also known as "Lou Gehrig's Disease", and it is one of the cruelest fates around. The victim slowly loses all motor control, until he or she is completely paralyzed, and is unable to speak. In the later stages, the patient cannot even breathe unassisted. The worst part of this is that the patient is totally aware of everything that is happening to him or her.

Now, you guys don't know me from Adam, but I met several of you a few years back at the AN/HH get-together in Anaheim. My late wife suffered from this hellish disease for three years before succumbing to it.

Therefore, I am asking you all a favor. Please go to the game on 7/27 and help to fight ALS. Do it for me... Do it for Lou Gehrig... I don't care. Just, please go, and help.

Information on this event may be found here.

For more information about Lou Gehrig's Disease in general, please visit the ALS Association. For the local chapter of ALSA, please see The Golden West Chapter

Thank you so much,
