More Information
One of my very best friends from high school, Lisa, has been suffering ALS for the past few years. I have seen her go from a thriving mom of two to bed-ridden and fully supported by a ventilator. She is the most self-less person and best mother. As a friend she was always there for me. With a beautiful smile or words of encouragement. She cannot talk any more, she cannot blink any more. ALS has robbed her of almost everything. Her spirit is so strong though. My wish is to give her a Christmas Party in her hospital room. A tree with decorations, lights, ornaments. A party to celebrate her life. She doesn't have much more time. We want her to know how much we love her and give her the best party ever! For her two growing boys we would love to gift them best buy gift cards (25.00 each) so they can get themselves a gift "from" mom. This will be Lisa's last Christmas. We are hoping and praying she will see the new year. Right now every moment is precious.
