Hello! My name is Darla French and I am initiating a campaign for my friend, Daniel, and his family. Daniel worked for Texas A&M Football as the Director of Football Recruiting for 5 years; it was during that time that our families became close.
This September, at the age of 35, Daniel was diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease). ALS is a disease of the parts of the nervous system that affects voluntary muscle movement and has no cure. The diagnosis came as a complete shock as he only started experiencing symptoms earlier this year. The diagnosis itself, is scary and full of unknowns, but we are all hopeful. We want them to be able to have the peace of mind that their everyday necessities will be taken care of as well as finances to access the care Daniel needs- treatments, travel, medical equipment and any other need that may arise for them. Daniel has already been forced to significantly cut back hours at work, as walking can be tiresome and laboring. He will eventually have to quit working all together as the disease progresses. They are focusing all their energy toward fighting this every step of the way. Our goal is to allow their minds and hearts to be focused on this fight, AND raising their beautiful children, and nothing else.
Please keep the Daniel's family in your prayers, and please consider donating to this truly wonderful family.
