A message from Sue Fights Plunge Team

February 16, 2017 is a date that altered our lives. After searching for 7 months, we finally found out why Sue’s voice was changing. Five Doctors and four prescriptions later, Sue was diagnosed with Bulbar ALS Onset. Prsonally, the only thing I knew about ALS was The Pride of the Yankees, which was the 1942 film about Lou Gehrig's life.

Our family was informed about the Joan Dancy and PALS Foundation from two different sources. We arranged a meeting with Pat, and had the pleasure of meeting with Pat, Kate and Kathy. At the end of our introductory meeting, they left our home as family.

Our family members, and caretakers attend both monthly support groups. We have met people on the same journey that we are on. At first, we were unaware of local support, and now we have friends that we see regularly. Through these new friendships, we share experiences and continue to receive much needed encouragement.

We are thankful to Pat, Kate, Kathy and all the volunteers that make this journey bearable. I call them our "angels" for I believe God has put them in our lives. Next to our faith, family and friends is the "Dancy team". What a blessing they have been to us.

Sue’s fight ended on November 28, 2018. She was surrounded by those she loved. Sue fought the best fight, and we miss her immensely. Her memories of a life lived for Jesus Christ and a tremendous love for her family will continue to carry us. We love you honey.
