My “sister”-in-law, Nancy Lux-Polisso, was diagnosed with ALS. 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. Presently there is no cure. Average life expectancy is a few years from diagnosis. 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. Nancy is the beautiful wife of my brother Mike, and wonderful mother of five AWESOME children; Sami, Mikey, Bailey, Carly, and the baby, Frankie; otherwise known as TEAM POLISSO. Times are getting tough for TEAM POLISSO. It costs an average of $200,000 a year to provide the care ALS patients need. The financial hardship caused by this disease is overwhelming with each passing day. Mike works as much as possible, but still needs to be home to care for Nancy and the kids. The cost to support his family of “7″ in itself is hard for a family without ALS, so can you imagine w/only one income that the struggle is multiplied by 10 with ALS. You can help make a difference, by making a donation to TEAM POLISSO, to help ease some of the burden and stress that continues to grow more and more with each day! Please feel free to view our personal website at: http://teampolisso.wordpress.com/ ALL DONATIONS GO DIRECTLY TO NANCY POLISSO/TEAM POLISSO. Thank You from the bottome of our hearts for you support.
