This year our WALK TO END ALS will be extra meaningful as it will be in special memory of our sweet Monty, who peacefully passed away on May 24, 2019 at 11:11AM surrounded by his family.
Dad was a tough fighter and gave ALS an incredible battle for almost a decade! Right from the time he was diagnosed up to his very last breathe, he was always surprising his Dr's, Specialists, Nurses, Care Aids, Friends and Family with how strong and brave he was.
It was an incredible journey and we are thankful to have had the ALS Society of BC at our sides. What an incredible association they are and they will forever hold a special place in our hearts. They are true ambassadors in finding a CURE and they are the epitome of CHAMPIONS as they continue to work so hard behind the scenes to lobby, educate, and raise much needed funds to support everyone impacted by this horrible disease. We are very grateful for the resources they provided, the equipment they loaned and all the support they genuinely gave to our entire family along the way.
To show our continued support and to help raise much needed funds for the Society, our family will be participating in the upcoming WALK for ALS in Williams Lake on Saturday, June 22, 2019.
Please join us in our goal to END ALS by making a donation. We would LOVE for you to join us in person if you are able, but understand of course if you can't. We appreciate your support either way. :)
On behalf of our entire family and all the other families living with ALS, we THANK YOU for your continued support and generosity and send you Huge virtual "Bear Hugs"!!
And, if you have a minute or two, please listen to Dad's sweet Thank-You speech from 2017: https://youtu.be/15GB6pCRPiE.
With our love always!
