For the 5th year in a row, DeVol is sponsoring a team for the Walk to Defeat ALS.
This cause is something near and dear to our hearts. We’ve had clients and friends … pleople we care about … fall victim to this disease and lose their lives to this awful condition.
ALS is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord. The disease is 100% fatal.
ALS takes away the ability to walk, dress, write, speak, swallow, and breathe.
- 6,000 people are diagnosed with ALS each year and nearly 20,000 Americans are living with ALS today.
- 90% of all cases of ALS are sporadic, meaning there is no family history of the disease.
- Every 90 minutes, someone is diagnosed with ALS. In the same period of time, someone will pass away from ALS.
- Veterans are twice as likely to get ALS.
With every scientific advance, we get closer to the cure. This is a horrible and always fatal disease. With every scientific advance, we get closer to a cure as a global community.
I’m calling on our community in the Greater Cincinnati area to help me me change these facts by donating to the Walk to Defeat ALS.
Please support my efforts to find a cure with a donation to the Walk to Defeat ALS today!
