Walk to Defeat ALS Seaside

A Cure For Kait

On June 9, it will be 7 years since I was diagnosed with the death sentence that is Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. I have watched myself lose the ability to run, walk, cut my food, dress myself, bathe myself, and speak in the way that I have my entire life. Miraculously, through the help of brilliant family and friends, I am still able to type, communicate, and work full time as a psychologist.  It is a daily testament each time God helps me to move and to breathe. The last few years have been filled with excruciating pain, endless frustration, and daily miracles.  ALS doesn’t just affect me; I can see the toll it has taken on my family and friends.

 As I have become progressively more paralyzed, we have seen the greatest strides in ALS research and I believe we will one day find a cure. People often ask, "How can I help?” Prayer is first and then this: Our team “A Cure for Kait” will be a part of the Seaside Walk to Defeat ALS on May 6, 2023 and we would be honored if you want to walk, donate, or be a part of it in any way.  Together our team has raised $97,696 over the course of five walks. This money goes into research to find a cure for this devastating disease, as well as supporting families that are struggling with it right now.  I have been truly blessed in my family, friends, church, and community.  We are already making a difference and together we can drastically change the experience of this disease. Please join, share, and make an impact.
