Tomorrow, October 23rd, Mike Porcaro’s children Brianne, Sam and Jeffrey will be walking the ALS’s Walk to Defeat ALS in LA. Please support them by donating to their team. You can find the links below their letter to all TOTO fans and friends.
On October 23rd, Brianne, Sam and Jeffrey are Walking in honor of their Dad and joining hundreds of walkers for The ALS Associations Walk to Defeat ALS, and we need your support to make our efforts really matter!
ALS, also known as Lou Gehrigs Disease, is a deadly illness with no known cause or cure.
It affects the motor neurons in a person’s brain and spinal cord. When the motor neurons die, the muscles waste away. Gradually, a person is robbed of the ability to walk, speak, eat, and eventually breathe. All the while, the mind remains sharp and aware of the total paralysis that is quickly setting in. Upon diagnosis, doctors give ALS patients only two to five years to live.
And that’s why we are walking for those who cant. Our efforts will help The ALS Association fund research to find the cause and cure of Lou Gehrigs Disease, as well as support services for people affected by it. Our team fundraising goal is to raise as much as we can, and we hope youll help us do as much as we can.
By making a one-time, tax-deductible donation, you can truly make a difference in the fight against ALS. Just visit our online fundraising website listed below to make a donation.
Any amount you feel comfortable giving is deeply appreciated. Every dime makes a difference! With your support, we can make a positive impact today in the lives of those living with Lou Gehrigs Disease.
The Porcaro Family
