Debbie and Rick Weisberg 2016 ASL & MS Walk for Living
We are gearing up for the eighth annual ALS & MS Walk for Living on September 25. Your support means so much.
The ALS and MS residents at the Leonard Florence Center for Living are inspirational, courageous, funny and self-deprecating. Many of them are young. Despite a devastating ALS diagnosis, they are living life to the fullest. One 40 year-old resident, who is completely immobilized and on a ventilator, produced an award-winning documentary about living with ALS -- just by moving his eyebrows. Another resident, an architect, helped design the Center when he was diagnosed with ALS eight years ago. At the time, he was told he had two to five years to live; today he travels throughout the country, giving presentations using a voice activated computer. We have a young college professor who had been confined to bed and one room in a nursing home before moving into the Center. His wife and five year old twins still live in Syracuse. And one of our new residents is a World Cup soccer player. Every one of these residents has reiterated how lucky they feel to live in the Leonard Florence Center for Living.
Thank you in advance for your help. Truly, we are so appreciative to everyone who has contributed over the years. It means the world to us – and to these remarkable individuals.
Debbie and Rick
