Never Give Up
Meg Gilmartin has raised $2,050 for ALS


In 2011 an uninvited guest came knocking on my familie’s door. That uninvited guest, was ALS. My grandfather Robert J Powers (aka my pup) had been falling often & losing some arm strength; we didn’t think much of it let alone that it could be ALS. What is ALS?

But so began our journey...for 3 years my pup wandered the unknown road of ALS, side by side with my brave grandmother, devoted family & many close friends, & Ron Hoffman especially. My pup & I had a very special bond, when I was little he would walk me in my stroller for hours around hos neighborhood, so much so that the tread wore off on the stroller’s tires. He was & forever will be known as an extraordinary man. Strong. Bold. Loving. He’d give you the shirt off his back without a penny in his own pocket. He taught me to live life to it’s fullest, to never settle, to always follow my dreams, & to Never. Give. Up.

Thank you for reading our story!

With love, light, and deep gratitude,



Dedication In memory of Robert J. Powers
