ALS. I grew up with those three letters as my dad's initials. Allan Lash Shackelford. I had no idea how much those initials would haunt me later in life. It's been over three years since I lost my dad to this debiliating disease. ALS. Most people live 3-5 years after daignosis and his decline was so rapid, that he passed after a mere five months. This is a seriously underfunded disease. Every 90 minutes, someone is diagnosed with ALS and I want to help do my part to aid in the research to put an end to ALS. Every $5 donation will be one entry to win some AMAZING prices. I appreciate every donation both large and small. I am so grateful every day for the ability to walk on my own, to do the simple things like scratch my face, and hug my loved ones. Let's give these simple gifts back to those who are fighting ALS.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
