OMG -- I’m Multitasking

I hate asking people for money, but it still seems to be the best way to fund medical research, especially for less common diseases, like ALS.

And it just occurred to me that I can use this money-begging text as a blog! I’m so far behind, they’ve probably mopped up my little blogspot by now. So here is the official August blog. Can September be far behind?

I am sponsoring a “virtual team” at the ALSA Walk to Defeat ALS on October 25, in Pasadena. The team name is Basically, ALS Sucks.

BOILERPLATE INFO: The ALS Association is the only non-profit organization in the U.S fighting Lou Gehrig’s Disease on every front. By leading the way in global research, providing assistance for people with ALS through a nationwide network of chapters, coordinating multidisciplinary care through certified clinical care centers, and fostering government partnerships, the association is invaluable to patients and their families.

I'm asking you to help with a tax-deductible donation. You can make your donation online via the link at the bottom of this message.

Any amount, great or small, helps in the fight. ALSA has helped me hugely with loaner equipment, support groups and much personal counseling from my rep. They are good guys and deserve support. It's either this or a bake sale, and you really don't want to have to eat my cookies.

Trust me on that.

I’ve never been able to do a link on this program, so just get your credit card out and cut and paste to one of the following URLs.

Thank you so much.
