When Kristin Sedate’s father was diagnosed with ALS in 2014, she stepped in to serve as one of his primary caregivers. Read her story about their journey through ALS and what your donations meant to their family.
At ALS Texas, we’re dedicated to serving people with ALS in any way we can. That includes running clinics, hosting support groups, providing grants, loaning equipment, funding research, educating people about ALS, and much more.
It’s only through the support of people like you that we’re able to do all this, and we want to thank you for helping make the past year a success. By almost any measure, 2015 was a banner year, with ALS Texas providing more services to more people—about 13% more, compared to 2014. Here’s a look at the numbers that help show what we were able to accomplish:
My name is Ernie Worth. I am a 38-year-old husband, a father of three, and an ALS patient.
For months leading up to my diagnosis last fall, I had been experiencing speech difficulties. For me, this was very strange, as I have always enjoyed giving presentations, public speaking, and the like. It started out subtly, and gradually got worse as time went by. I was also rapidly losing weight, and since I have always been very physically fit and health-conscious, the physical change was quite obvious and disturbing.
