Prince Albert Walk
My Message
My brother Glen Loseth lost his fight with ALS in 2004, and I will be participating in the 2011 Prince Albert Walk For ALS in his memory as a member of Team Glen. Please make a donation of whatever size to help fight this cruel disease.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"Most people with ALS lose the use of their legs in the first two years of the disease. What would you do, while you still could?"

Please help me raise money to find a cure for this devastating disease and support those living with ALS and their families in our community. Click on the ‘Sponsor Me’ button to donate now. THANK YOU.

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, ALS, is also known as Lou Gehrig's disease, after the famous American baseball player who died of ALS in 1941. ALS is a progressive and ultimately fatal neuromuscular disease, which has no known cause, cure or drug therapy of consequence. Individuals who are diagnosed with ALS do not typically survive beyond 3-5 years. This devastating disease slowly robs the individual of the ability to walk, talk, and ultimately, to breathe.

ALS Facts:

* Two to three Canadians a day die of ALS

* Approximately 3,000 Canadians currently live with ALS

* In at least 90% of cases, ALS strikes individuals with no family history of the disease

* Between 5-10% have a familial form of ALS, so 2 or more of their family members have it.

* ALS can strike anyone, regardless of age, sex or ethnic origin

* The usual age of onset is between 55 and 65, but some have been younger than 20

* Nearly 90% of people with ALS died within 5 years of diagnosis. While some live longer, others die within a few short months

* ALS affects the whole family

* ALS is a costly disease - emotionally, physically, and financially.
