Walk to Defeat ALS *Saturday October, 9th 2010. Corporate Woods*

Please join my team as a walker or as a sponsor for this years ALS Walk at Corporate Woods.

My friend Heather Blanton was diagnosed with ALS in February of 2009.

Here is her story in her own words.

"One of the biggest challenges that I will ever have to face is this: I was recently diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease) it is a nerve/ muscle disease. It is a debilitating terminal disease that they have yet to find a cure for. I was diagnosed in Feb 2009, and I am learning to cope with the fact of what is going to happen to me, but more I have learned to go forward with my life and not let it get to me, we are all put on this earth for a reason and the family and friends that I have and are making is why I was put on this earth. I just want anyone who reads my profile to know that I love all my family and friends and thank you all to have been anything and everything to me!

I pretty much trust everyone from the beginning, unless you give me a reason not to trust you. I don't take anything for granted!!"
