Shooting For The North Star: The friends of Gary & Tami North are raising money for a handicap accessible van, for Gary who has ALS.

Gary & Tami North have been married almost 22 years; they have had a wonderful marriage and life together. They have lovingly raised 2 children, and owned a successful construction company. They are a wonderful Christian family and are always giving to and supporting others. In 2008 Gary was leaving a construction job and the client noticed Gary had a limp and foot drop. The family tried different treatments but, nothing worked. They then went to the family doctor, who expressed grave concern, testing began right away. Then on July 30, 2009, the shocking news came Gary was diagnosed with ALS. Gary had just celebrated his 40th birthday in May 2009. Gary is doing well 3 years later but, is almost completely homebound, the family does not have a handicap accessible van. The family also has other medical and financial needs.
The van is desperately needed to take Gary to the doctor, and to allow him the freedom to continue to go on outings with the family. The family is having to take two trips to Texas this summer and the trip for Gary is going to be very difficult. He will be riding over 8 hours in the front seat of a van, unable to change position or relieve pressure.
Please help, no gift is to small.
