Believe...Pick a stronger word than Hope...Cure.
As the year closes down, thoughts of loved ones come to mind..."Christmas" is felt everwhere...what gifts would we all like?...what could we share that would affect many..."health and happines"...for some, the thought of a world free from ALS..."so others may and would live"...that fills our thoughts always, and we know that only by and with you is it possible..."research into this disease is key"...so, if your thoughts are to support all kinds of endeavors in these areas...we thank you...this is what we are doing, because of you...http://waronals.org/research/ and we thank you...G-D bless, for Jon, "the-blazeman", his family, and mom and dad.
