The friends and family of Eric Witherite are uniting to raise money to help with his battle against ALS.

My oldest and dearest friend has recently been diagnosed with ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig ’s disease. Eric Witherite is a 37 year old father of two, loving husband, elementary school teacher, wrestling coach and friend to many.

For those that don’t know, ALS is one of the worst. It is a progressive disease that attacks nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord. As these cells die, the brain loses the ability to control muscle movement which leads to the wasting away of muscle. The average life expectancy is 2-5 years from the time of diagnosis.

A fundraiser is being held in Erie, PA on April 15th to benefit Eric and his family. Additionally, I am attempting to collect funds from those unable to attend or who wish to do more. All money collected will go to the family to help offset their expenses.

Thank you in advance for your generosity and support. If you have any questions, I can be reached at
