ALS stands for Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and is also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. ALS weakens the nervous system and there is no cure. The Brigance Brigade Foundation is a nonprofit that was started by former Baltimore Ravens player O.J. Brigance and his wife Chanda Brigance. O.J. has been courageously living with ALS for 12 years. The Brigance Brigade Foundation supports not only those with ALS but their caretakers and families. This organization has done so much to bring awareness to ALS and the impact it has on caretakers and their families. O.J. and Chanda have been very transparent about their ALS journey.
Support this worthy cause during this month of celebrations. Some events happening this month include Cinco de Mayo, Mother’s Day, birthdays, graduations, anniversaries, baby showers, weddings and more. Also, you do not need a special occasion to participate in this worthy cause. I am looking forward to posting my pictures to social media. I am looking forward to seeing your pictures also. Thank you to the Brigance Brigade Foundation for bringing daily awareness to ALS. Thank you to all the restaurants participating in #ALSBites.
