My husband and I were just interviewed by the local TV station about the boys and the walk. The segment should air Tuesday. I'll post the segment on my Youtube, then the link to that on this thread so anyone here can see it.
The walk is now a week away and plans are going well. Busy busy. Lots of community support coming out of the woodwork, which is so moving.
It's amazing how many people had no clue what ALS is. Well, now they do.
The week following the walk was very difficult emotionally. Of course, my husband and I knew the funds from this event would not cure either of our sons, so we were both unprepared for the emotional upheaval after the walk. The well wishers and supporters had gone back to their lives, all the excitment and hype was over. We were left with event letdown, and the latest thing Johnny can no longer do, (this list is getting quite long now, btw) which is to be able to cut butter which hard and cold out of the refrigerator.
That entire week after the walk, I kept having the same dream. Johnny had passed from ALS and we were at the grave site. I was sobbing, holding onto the coffin as it was lowed, screaming 'But we raised thousands of dollars for a cure!' The depression was so deep, so immense, it was truly horrible.
But we're past that. Now that this walk is wrapped up, it's time to start thinking about next year lol.

Hello Hoping :-D I'd be happy to send you two shirts. You name the size, any is fine as the order hasn't' been placed yet. We are charging $10 each which is $4 back into the walk, which means ultimately going to ALS TDI. Message me your contact info and I'll happily add your order to the list.
