Hi, I'm running the Falmouth Road Race in honor of my uncle Rick Scanlan. A few years ago, Ricky was diagnosed with ALS. For those who do not know about ALS, it is a terrible disease which has left him in a wheel chair and needing around the clock assistance. With the help of the Compassionate Care ALS non-profit, Ricky has been given equipment and services that have greatly helped his situation, including a special computer which he can communicate to others by tracking his eye movements (it sounds like Daniel Craig with an American accent). Please donate what you can as this group really does change the lives of people with ALS and their families.
