Thank you to all of the #ALS caregivers during the National Family Caregivers Month! Being the Primary caregiver for a loved one with ALS can be stressful as they spend an average of 24 hours per week providing care. Many caregivers have additional outside responsibilities, such as working a full- or part-time job along with providing care for loved ones. Thank you to all the caregivers and their unwavering dedication to ALS!

Remembering Pat Quinn

We are incredibly sad to hear that Pat Quinn, co-founder of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, passed away Sunday, November 22nd, at age 37. Pat Quinn along with Pete Frates launched the viral Ice Bucket Challenge that sparked world-wide awareness and helped raise $220 million for ALS research. Without the efforts of Mr. Quinn, our foundation would not be where it is today. His resilience, hard work, and bravery embody the message of the ALS Wisconsin Chapter. Our hearts are with his family and we thank Mr. Quinn for his unfailing and persistent dedication to ALS.

There are great rewards to being a caregiver. But without adequate help and support, the stress can leave a caregiver vulnerable to a wide range of physical and emotional difficulties.

Hello Ladies and Gentlemen of The A.L.S. Association. I'm from the UK. In this country A.L.S. is more commonly referred to as M.N.D. (Motor Neurone Disease). I'm a musician (Chris) from Keswick. I've busked in the town for many years and because of this I've been asked to play in Tearooms, Guest Houses, Hotels, Cafés and various small venues. People from all over the world come to Keswick in the beautiful Lake District. (Home of the red squirrel) I've sold many CDs to visitors from near and far including Japan, The States, France, Germany and places too numerous to mention. Unfortunately I was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease in 2018 and can no longer play guitar. The Motor Neuron Disease Association (M.N.D.A) is wonderful and helps people and their families with many issues brought on by this awful disease. It also helps fund research in the hope that one day there may be a cure. Work continues all the time. It relies on charitable donations only and has no government funding. Motor Neuron Disease got me thinking of how I could help raise funds for the M.N.D. Association. Hence the idea of an album of songs. I can no longer play guitar but still manage to compose with keyboard. The results of which is a brand-new album entitled 'Legacy'. It has 19 numbers many of which were written during lockdown. Some of my older, guitar based, material has been re-mastered and re-mixed but all are original. If you would like an album your donation to this excellent cause would be most appreciated. A nominal donation of £7.00 ($9.00) (Suggested Price) per album would be most appreciated. I am now a member of 'Bandcamp'. So you can download the album. It's simple. Go to : 'JustGiving!' : https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/Christopher-Jordan2 https://www.facebook.com/christopher.jordan.90663894 Make a donation. Then go to my page on 'Facebook' or contact me via e-mail and I will send you a code. Go to : https://chrisjordan2.bandcamp.com/yum Enter the code and download the album. Don't forget the wonderful M.N.D. Association's page on: www.mndassociation.org to find out more about the disease and how they help families, victims and fund research. 100% of all donations will go to the M.N.D. Association The following photograph shows me in better times. My arms and hands have now lost a lot of their use, I can't walk and I use my ventilation for many hours during the day as well as all night every night. So it's a question of doing something satisfying every day and trying to live in the moment. Let's hope our wonderful scientists and doctors, on both sides of the Atlantic, make progress in searching for a cure. Then it'll be : 'Second star to the right and on until morning.' Thank You Very Much, Chris. PS. You can find a video of me playing live on my 'Facebook' page. PPS. Would you be kind enough to pass this message on to as many people as possible ?
Hello friends of ALS Wisconsin! I work at TMJ4 and we're looking for nominations for our annual Positively Milwaukee Awards. Do you know a volunteer, healthcare worker, community advocate or all-around inspiring person in SE Wis. who deserves recognition? They could win up to $5000 for the charity of their choice and be highlighted in our November TV special honoring local unsung heroes. Lots of categories to choose from. Nominate at tmj4.com/awards. Deadline to nominate is Sept. 18th.
My first symptoms of ALS occurred in 2011, but was diagnosed in 2013. I had severe symptoms ranging from shortness of breath, balance problems, couldn't walk without a walker or a power chair, i had difficulty swallowing and fatigue. I was given medications which helped but only for a short burst of time, then i decided to try alternative measures and began on ALS Formula treatment from Akanni herbal centre , It has made a tremendous difference for me (Visit www. akanniherbalcentre .com). I had improved walking balance, increased appetite, muscle strength, improved eyesight and others.
Hello everyone, my grandfather passed away from the cruelty of ALS 10 years ago. Ever since he was diagnosed, my mother found comfort in painting her journey through grief and immense heartache during this tragic time and after his passing. When the paintings were finished. I composed the song for this video I am sharing with you now. It has all the paintings along with the words explained for each and the grief it brung to her and everybody that knew and loved my grandfather. She also has a website you can view everything separately or together as well. If you found it in your heart to view this video and share with others, it would mean the world to us and many others, hope. www.windymorey.com
