People with ALS pass through a doorway into a different world. It's a one way trip: you may survive, but you can never come home to the same old life.

And however much they want to be with you, Moms, Dads, Sisters, Brothers, Spouses, Friends & Lovers can't come into your world on an equal footing. But when people with ALS meet, it's different.

They don't have to explain how it feels

They don't have to explain anything

MY PLEDGE TO REMEMBER
Do you have a friend or loved one that you would like to Pledge to Remember? If so please go to the page below, you can pledge on line or print the form off and send it to me.

Donations are appreciated but not necessary, the money raised will go to Research at ALS Canada and Awareness at ALS March of Faces. Please consider taking part in this project.

ANGELS FOR HOPE

Angels for Hope is a non-profit organization that offers free crocheted angels for anyone in need of hope.

We attach a small card with the angel to say to an injured or ill person, you are not alone, others do care, and you are in our thoughts and prayers.

At your request we can let it be known that you requested the item.

In addition to crocheted angels, we also offer butterflies and smiley faces

 

To request an Angel click on the picture below:
