We can find the light even in our darkest times when despair kicks in this is the time when you need your friends, your family and your community.
At this time is when you see the true meaning of God loving people helping one another. Donald Gage has been diagnosed last September with ALS, often referred to as “Lou Gehrig’s Disease,” is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that When the motor neurons die, the ability of the brain to initiate and control muscle movement is lost.
With voluntary muscle action progressively affected, patients in the later stages of the disease may become totally paralyzed.
The financial burden will be enormous for this family and will only continue to get worse in the months to come. This illness progresses to the point where a person needs a feeding tube and ventilator.
The only thing able to help him at this moment to slow the progression is Radicava. It is a new drug just approved by FDA to slow progression, it will be available in August. Donald has three children and they are young ones.
The illness is bad and crippling no one should fight this alone. Donald went from loving father of three to unable to walk without a walker now he is wheelchair and bed ridden he is able to move his hands but is extremely limited to movement.
Please pray for Donald and his family.
Share, Pray, Love We ask you to please take a moment and make a donation of ANY amount to help a great cause to make it easier so he can spend his last days at home with his family.
