ALS impacts all of us. This year we will be launching UNLOCK ALS at our walks. Each Participant will receive a colored lanyard symbolizing his or her connection to the mission with a Walk-logoed key. In addition, participants can write messages for loved one effected by ALS on a paper key. Make sure you and your team members stop by the UNLOCK ALS tent to write your tribute and hang your key. And make sure to participate in the opening ceremony! #alsassociationmichiganchapter#unlockals#walktodefeatals#ALS
#throwbackthursday to May 1st 2014, my wedding day in Cancun, Mexico-- Of course we didnt realize it then but this whole trip, my mom was clumsier on her feet. This woman lived in high heels her entire adult life but throughout the week, there were a few little trip ups on her wedge sandals that seemed unusual for her. We just chalked it up to her being hyper emotional and the slick tile and concrete floors around the resort.
Looking back now, we see that this may have been the start of her symptoms that lead to her first big fall in the summer of 2014-- yet it would take around a dozen visits to various neurologists in the Okanagan and Vancouver over the next 3.5 years before she would officially be disgnosed with ALS.
There are so many things we would have done differently if mom had recieved an earlier diagnosis--this is why more research and testing needs to be done to unlock the mysteries of this neurological degenerative disease. 💙
One thing I am truly thankful for is having my mom walk with me and dad down the aisle. At the time, I didn't realize just how special that moment would end up being.
“FDNY Battalion 18 responded to a report of a car accident on the Cross Bronx Expressway & Sheridan Expressway. Upon arrival, the units encountered a car that careened off the road and landed in the Bronx River. The car was sitting right side up and partially submerged. It was approximately 5 feet from the shoreline with an individual partially out of the sunroof. brought a 20' portable ladder to the scene and used it as a breach to the car. FDNY Firefighter Gardner, Ladder 58, donned a water rescue suit and entered the water to place the individual on the stokes basket. At this point, entered the water to conduct a search of the vehicle and the surrounding area while attended to the patient,” says Battalion Chief Kenneth J.

LINK IN BIO! I’m running the Las Vegas Half Marathon with Team Challenge ALS on November 11th and NEED YOUR HELP!
My grandma passed away from #ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease) almost 8 years ago, and in her memory I’m raising $$$ to #strikeoutals!
My fundraising goal is $2,890 - which represents the number of days since she passed away at the time of the race. Every donation means so much and no donation is too small. All money goes toward the ALS Association’s ultimate goal of A WORLD WITHOUT ALS!
There is currently no cure for ALS; it’s a virtual death sentence. The average life expectancy of a person with ALS is about 2-5 years. Once ALS starts, it progresses rapidly, eventually taking away a person’s ability to walk, speak, swallow, and breathe. LET’S CHANGE THAT TOGETHER!
Visser Leeuwarden is in 1910 opgericht door Gerben Visser. Als Visser Wagenmakerij richtte het bedrijf zich voornamelijk op de productie van koetsen en sjezen. Toen het gemotoriseerd vervoer in Nederland toenam, groeide Visser uit tot een bouwer van autobussen, ambulances en brancardsystemen. In de jaren vijftig en zestig van de vorige eeuw ontwikkelde het bedrijf zich meer en meer tot een specialist in hulpverleningsvoertuigen.
Visser Leeuwarden komt met een Volkswagen Crafter ALS Ambulance naar Rescue Vlissingen.

A man is known by his good deeds. A good deed is never lost, he who sows courtesy reaps great friendship, and he who plants kindness gathers an abundance of love.
