Target ALS Clay Shoot

The reality of ALS can be difficult to understand. Imagine for a moment; you seem to be shorter of breath than normal – or friends and loved ones point out that your speech is slurred.  Maybe you seem to be experiencing weakness in your arms or legs or falling frequently and you are not sure why.  After months and months of doctor’s appointments and tests – each increasing in invasiveness and pain – no answers. Maybe you had carpal tunnel surgery – but it did not seem to help, were referred to a psychiatrist – but these things are not in your head.
