- Short Bio
I started experiencing neurological symptoms in 2011 and was diagnosed with ALS in 2014. As a veteran, I participate in clinics at the VA as well as at Northwestern Memorial Hospital through the Les Turner ALS Foundation. I am fortunate in that my ALS is slow progressing and in my 7th year I’m still able to walk with a rolator and speak very slowly, but understandably. I also participate in group meetings with the VA and with LTALSF.
