A good friend of mine here in Calgary, AB named James Bundy (20 years young and a great jazz drummer, too), lost his dad to ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease, back in 2008. The following is an online fundraiser his family has organized to help find a cure for this devastating disease. As with any of these pursuits, every dollar makes a difference; truly, if there is anything to spend some spare coin on, it is something of this sort. I'm sure many of you know that this also happens to be the same disease that ensnared a man named Huddie Ledbetter in 1949.
Its reach is far though a spare dollar from the odd, anonymous internet passer-by such as myself or yourself could constitute a viable difference.
