ALS is a thief. It robs its victims of the ability to move arms and legs, to eat without choking, to breathe. Eventually, this insidious disease robs them of life, and steals the future from their families.
ALS has robbed me of friends. These losses motivated me to become a board member of the Catfish Hunter Chapter in North Carolina. As a member of the board, I’ve had the privilege of meeting and talking with people with ALS, their families and caregivers, and the staff of this amazing organization. In the face of the physical cruelties of ALS, the caregivers and Catfish Hunter Chapter staff are among the most loving and supportive people I’ve ever met. The work they do can be classified as a daily miracle, seemingly tireless and always an inspiration.
At HensonFuerst Attorneys, our mission is to raise as much money as possible for the local chapter, and to provide funds for the caregivers and families of ALS patients. I am pleased to be captain of the HensonFuerst walk team this year’s Walk to Defeat ALS, and I encourage friends, relatives, and coworkers to help by joining the Bob Fuerst Team, or by donating funds in any amount to help us provide the financial support that is so desperately needed. The more people we can enlist and the more funds we can raise, the sooner we can bring an end to this horrible disease.
