The Story

My birthday wish… Will you help me help 30 ALS families for my 30th birthday?

Augie Neito, thoughtfully surprised me and created this fundraiser page for my future caregiving expenses. To expand his kindness,  my family and I have decided together to re-gift this to 30 ALS families. ALL donations will be divided evenly to these families. We are collecting photos from everyone and will share their names here in the next few days with their consent.

I have an overwhelming feeling of humility and gratefulness in my heart. Grateful for the abilities that I still have and for all the support that has uplifted my family and I. At the same time, I also cannot imagine what it must be like for the families that may not have the same opportunities. So, for the following weeks, I would love to celebrate life with all of you by offering a gift to 30 other families that truly need our support. I want to share the love you have given me because it has brought so much inspiration, strength and hope to our famiIy.

I was told that this may be too ambitious. But I feel the contrary. I feel inspired. This disease does not have to be a death sentence. Life with ALS can be meaningful and beautiful. Let's show the world. 

Initial post from Augie: Happy 30th Birthday to my good friend Anthony Carbajal who single handidly $4 million for ALS TDI during the Ice Bucket Challenge in 2014! As you know, living with ALS isn't cheap so I'd like to ask all of our social media friends to join me in a "30 for 30" challenge. Click the link and donate $30 for Anthony's 30th Birthday. 100% of funds raised will help Anthony and his family with caregiving expenses!!!

“The aftermath of ALS isn't easy and after my Dad passed away in 2015, he left my mom needing to work two jobs just to make ends meet (including unpaid Memorial bills), and even then she struggles. She works so hard now, day in and day out and comes home exhausted.My Dad, Jim Reboudo was everything to my family and I. He was once the loudest talker, the fastest walker, and the person who could finish his second plate of spaghetti in the time it takes most people to eat their first. He worked so hard to provide for his family… he loved us more than anything.”

This is a message I received from Jennifer Marie in memory of her loving father, Jim Reboudo. She and her beautiful family are the 9th chosen ALS grant recipients. Will you help me help them? For those that don’t know, I am attempting to help 30 families that are in desperate need of our love and support for my 30th birthday. So far we've been able to raise $9,730 enough to give each family $325! Hoping to give each family at least $1,000 dollars at the end of these 30 days. Will you help us reach our goal by donating or sharing the link below? I will continue to share 1 story each day for another 21 days with the help of my mother, Catherine Scott and other all star advocates in the ALS community. During this time, the fundraiser will be open to raise as much money as possible to give to these 30 individuals that truly need our love and support. The total amount raised will be evenly divided and distributed. Bless your www.youcaring.com/anthonycarbajal-868210

Father suffering from ALS, loses home, farm, cars, equipment, and animals after a devastating flood. The family just recently canceled flood insurance to pay for stacking medical bills and reduction in income. Now they have lost almost everything on top of their dad's diagnosis. Robert Moro is a 59-year-old man with ALS from Lake County IL and is my eighth ALS Grant recipient. He has 10 children and 25 grandchildren. They are a very close family that lived together on this farm and put their lives on hold to care for Robert. Now, they are separated during this incomprehensible devastation to their home. 

Please consider reaching out to Robert’s family directly, or donate by following the link below. If you would like to get in touch with their family, you can message Robert's daughter Angela here:https://www.facebook.com/angela.komarovNo worries if you are unable to help monetarily, you can also help by a simple share/like/comment.

Would you help me send Audrey Fisher and her beautiful family lots of love!? Diagnosed with ALS in 2014 she had to give up her job and so did her husband to help care for her every day. They are now having difficulty affording their mortgage, medical bills and kids college tuition. Here is what her sister, Coleen Pino, wrote in her behalf since she is unable to type:“When first dx, Audrey did not recognize the name of the disease, she did not understand the reference to Lou Gehrigs's disease, she could not comprehend the analysis of how the disease progressed. She quickly learned. By June 30, 2016 she had to give up her job and was confined to a wheelchair. She is now dependent on others to wash and feed her. 

By the end of August 2016, it became necessary for her husband, Bob to give up his job and salary, also, to become Audrey's full-time caregiver. By this time their sons, Bobby and Zachary, were attending college. Now with the reduced income they were faced with the challenge of affording the mortgage, household bills and two college tuitions. Her bedroom is now part of the family living room since she can no longer be transported upstairs to her bedroom. The only way she can go out is via the "T RIDE" since she requires her large electronic wheelchair for transportation. She is on oxygen which also limits her capacity to be out for long periods of time. Audrey is a fierce warrior and she is very determined to spend as much time as possible with her husband and sons, no matter what physical restriction ALS sends her way. Her smile is contagious and her spirit is inspiring to all her meet her.”Please consider reaching out to Audrey Fisher and her family directly, donate by following the link below or simply share/like/comment.
