Dean’s and our family’s lives have changed forever but he gave us the love and strength to embrace what lies ahead of us. We are moving forward, with him and our memories in our hearts and with the promise that we will explore every channel and every avenue in raising funds for the fight against ALS.
This is why I am reaching out to you today. We can’t do this alone.
We need you to join the fight against ALS.
By joining forces, we will succeed in facing this terrible disease. In Dean’s memory and for all families touched by ALS, I appeal to you to help us break the ice :
Help fund research and provide families living with ALS across the province with psychosocial, technical and financial support.
Help us shutout ALS!
Finding treatments and ultimately a cure for ALS will take team work. Together we can make a real difference.
Dean, we won’t quit.
