Tossin’ Away ALS Families
Meet some of the individuals and families living with ALS.
- Diagnosed 2016
- Trip to Indiana, 2019
My name is Mary, and I have been married to my husband, Woody, for 50 years!
Living with ALS certainly has its challenges…Tossin’ Away ALS helped us visit our family back in Indiana in 2019. I love my family and it was so nice to see them again. To all of you who support this wonderful organization, thank you for making that possible!
Meet Maceo Carter
- Diagnosed 2016
- Trip to Universal Studios California, 2018
Hello there! My name is Maceo Carter. I’m 43 years old and married to Maya Carter. I am the proud father to three wonderful young men. After months of wondering why the muscles in my arms and hands twitched so much, I asked my doctor during a routine physical and was referred to a neurologist for further testing. On June 3, 2016 I was diagnosed with a motor neuron disease but was told more testing needed to be done.
For those who missed Channel 3’s story about Maceo and Maya and their family’s trip to California, here’s the full, unedited version. This is WHY we started this organization. 💕 All the generous donations make it possible for these wonderful families to create memories together. 😊 Thank you for all the support! A special thanks to Heather Moore TV for writing this story. Wonderful work as always!Posted by Tossin' Away ALS on Sunday, November 25, 2018
