ALS Advocacy

ALS Advocacy
Lou Gehrig's Disease - Motor Neuron Disease - Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis
Thought it had been cured by now? Still no known cause. Still no cure. Still quickly fatal. Still outrageous.

Mothers' Day = Good Day for Advocacy and Awareness in the U.S. Capital



The Piece by Piece display was a big awareness success on Pennsylvania Avenue yesterday. It is a striking, artistic, simple, magnet that grabs both attention and interest.





Steve Franks, the man with ALS who drove the display from Florida to Washington, was featured with his mother on the Washington Channel 4 NBC affiliate news last night at 11 pm.





It looks like Dunn & Company is receiving recognition for their creative contribution to ALS awareness with the Piece by Piece display. They not only donated their considerable creative talent and grasp of ALS, they also showed up and helped carry mannequin stands and sandbags to make that display happen in Washington.

It was a good Mothers' Day.
