    I have ALS

    I debated on posting this but finally decided I needed to. Over the years I have felt like BGP's was my second family .

    ALS is a nasty fatal disease. I have lost use of my left arm and hand. My right is getting weaker every day. Posting is getting hard for me. I have tried the speaker on my phone, but I still need lots of practice.

    I loved posting on the GRC boys and girls basketball teams. If some of you would help posting on them. I would really appreciate it. I always loved reading posts of others supporting their teams.

    I am blessed to have the love of God to hold my hand during this new journey of my life. I have the most loving and caring husband and son, family and friends. I am a blessed woman.

    On my new bucket list is to meet as many BGPer's as I can.

    Hard enough having to live with ALS, I'm sure it can be equally as hard to talk about it. Prayers Gold Sunrise, hoping you get to enjoy many more basketball games for years to come.

    Breaks my heart, but you've got an outstanding support system. You're in my prayers, and I will do my best to help you with the GRC threads.

    Hard to add to what has already been said. Try to stay strong and look to Jesus for comfort.
