For my mom and all those affected by ALS


My name is Rachel and I am saddened to say that I lost my mother 3 years ago to Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also known as ALS or Lou Gehrig’s disease. It is a rapidly progressive and fatal disease and no cure has yet been found.

I decided to create this blog as a  tribute to her and all those affected by ALS. The pages within this blog will hopefully give you a chance to not only learn about ALS, but also to learn how it has affected my mom and our family.

This year will be my sixth year participating in the ALS walk event (June 2017) in the hopes to raise money to fund research for a cure and to provide care and services for those affected by this relentless disease. Please help if you can by making a donation (link to my sponsor page found at the bottom of each page).

I invite you to check out the other pages on this blog, share your story (or this link), or simply comment.

Hope you enjoy,

Rachel Petrynko
