Julia Dyer has served patients at the ALS Association of Texas for the past 12 years. As she moves on to pursue new opportunities, we wanted to take this time to thank Julia for her service to people with ALS and their caregivers. She wrote this farewell letter to the ALS community that beautifully describes the impact of her time with ALS Texas. Thank you, Julia.
The ALS community is unlike any other. I’m sure many people say that about an organization or group of people they completely admire and love, but really. Over the past 11 and a half years, I have learned some pretty valuable life lessons from people who were also learning as they went along. Not to mention, most would probably agree they had just received the worst news of their life. I witnessed families come together and rally harder than I’ve ever seen and show unwavering amounts of support and love.
