Please donate to our team, Susie's Angels, in memory of our mother, Susan Ortega who lost her battle to ALS 12 years ago. She fought courageously with the help and support of her family. We all miss our mother, but we know she was watching over us as we dealt with our grief of past family members who have passed. We ask that you donate in memory of our mother so that a cure can be found for this devastating disease.
Thank you for helping us reach and surpass our fund raising goal last year! Together we can make a difference in the lives of those affected by Lou Gehrig’s Disease. Our team is committed to raising money to support people in our community with ALS and spread awareness of the urgency to find treatment and a cure. Please consider joining our team in the Walk to Defeat ALS® or choose a team member from the list and donate to our cause.
Why We Need Your Help
Often referred to as Lou Gehrig's Disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive, fatal neuromuscular disease that slowly robs the body of its ability to walk, speak, swallow and breathe.
Every 90 minutes a person in this country is diagnosed with ALS and every 90 minutes another person will lose their battle against this disease.
This crippling disease can strike anyone. Presently there is no known cause of the disease yet it still costs loved ones an average of $200,000 a year to provide the care ALS patients need. Help make a difference and donate or join a walk today.
