Norcross Santa's Workshop Event- Hope for Steve Day3:00 AM
Remember the ALS challenge a few months back? If you're in the Metro Atlanta area, did you hear about the Hope for Steve campaign, helping to find a cure from the ALS disease.
It really touched my heart and brought me to tears when I watched a clip about Steve from Johns Creek battle with ALS. I know exactly what he is going through because I have cousin that is battling this horrific disease as well.
Whats is ALS? Here is a quote from ALSA.org
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), often referred to as "Lou Gehrig's Disease," is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Motor neurons reach from the brain to the spinal cord and from the spinal cord to the muscles throughout the body. The progressive degeneration of the motor neurons in ALS eventually leads to their death. When the motor neurons die, the ability of the brain to initiate and control muscle movement is lost. With voluntary muscle action progressively affected, patients in the later stages of the disease may become totally paralyzed.
The good people over in Norcross, Georgia will be opening their Santa's Workshop doors to Hope for Steve this Sunday, December 7th and 100% ticket proceeds will benefit Hope for Steve and ALS TDI.
Hope for Steve’s “day” will be this Sunday, but Santa’s Workshop will be open Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays through December 21st, with proceeds benefiting Habitat for Humanity (every other day except for this Sunday).
