In April 2015,  the Anthony Senerchia Jr. ALS Charitable Foundation helped Donna Myhre by donating funds to assist with her care. Please see Donna’s note and her story below.

Hello and thank you so much for the most generous donation. Please know, it has been a great assist to my family and we are eternally grateful. My story: As a teacher and fitness instructor I was always moving and on the go. I was an active 39 year old triathlete who enjoyed running around and playing kickball with my nieces, liked taking the stairs, and being independent. When my muscles started cramping, twitching, and weakening, I was perplexed. I spent over a year trying to figure out what was happening. On September 28, 2012, I was diagnosed with a motor neuron disease most closely representing the symptoms of ALS. Unknowingly, two weeks prior I had conceived my beautiful daughter. I had to immediately change my life philosophy to keep myself sane. “Listen intently, love unconditionally, and embrace the good life has to offer”. Currently, I spend my days teaching middle school math and my evenings with my family. I am blessed to still be walking, very unsteadily and with much support, but walking! Entertaining an almost 2 year old, snuggling and letting those around me know how appreciative I am have become my favorite hobbies. I have a fantastic support system and have encountered more kindness and generosity then ever imaginable while on this journey. I look forward to many more years of memories with those I love.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Donna Myhre

In April 2015,  the Anthony Senerchia Jr. ALS Charitable Foundation helped Lindsay Abromaitis-Smith by donating funds to assist with her care. Please see Lindsay’s note, bio and photo below.

Dear Anthony, Thank you so much for your generous donation. As I’m sure you know, mobility is a huge challenge now. Having the ability to go places outside of the city is essential to my mental health and you have made it so much easier. I plan on going on a road trip with my husband this summer!  Many thanks and much goodness, Lindsay.

In December 2014,  the Anthony Senerchia Jr. ALS Charitable Foundation helped a San Antonio Texas family with ALS by donating funds to assist with their care.

The Anthony Senerchia Jr. ALS Charitable Foundation donated $15,000.00 to the Columbia University ALS gift fund in October 2014. The ability to donate these funds was made possible by the generous donations raised during our Annual Strike Out ALS Softball Tournament and through the donations made directly to our Foundation as a result of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.

YOUR donations are making a difference in the fight against ALS and in the lives of others. Thank you for your continued support! The Foundation looks forward to the opportunity to Give Back to the ALS community!
