Don Young, husband and father of two, was diagnosed with ALS within the last year and lost his ability to run his business. In addition to losing his income, ALS patients take on average, $80,000 per year to take care of, and insurance does not cover it all. Don is too proud to ask for help, however, I feel it is our duty to help his family.
