About Marie-NC

Married for 43 years with two daughters, two grandsons and beautiful great granddaughter . Workaholic all my life until ALS hit me. First signs of a problem around Feb. 2003 and diagnosed 5/06. Left arm and hand affected and can feel weakness in legs and right arm. Needed to work as long as possible because we all know disability is a big cut in income and we all have increasing medical cost. Hope to retain my positive attitude with God's help. I am the short blonde here with my daughters . Farm girl from family with nine children and we had fun but worked hard .


Married 42 years with two daughters and two grandsons .My first great grandchildren is on the way and we are excited . This disease really sucks and we  desperately need a cure .God and my family see me through each day .
