Sara is... My Friend.
In November 2018, Sara was diagnosed with ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) or most commonly known as Lou Gehrig's Disease. Most simplistically explained in laypersons terms, ALS is a progressive disease where muscle tissue in the body slowly dies and causes increasing paralysis over time. Ultimately, ALS patients lose the ability to swallow, breathe and move. The person's mind, however, usually remains unaffected so he or she is acutely aware of most everything. ALS is always fatal and patients typically live for 3 to 5 years after diagnosis. There currently is no cure for ALS.
Once diagnosed, Sara began doing what Sara does --- Raise Awareness. She has made it her mission to #LetsKickSomeALS. Be a part of this mission!
