Family and friends of Brian Dillon are raising money to support his battle with ALS. Please show your support, donate today! Thank you.

My husband has become a victim of ALS, and he needs your help and support. He is fighting a battle that he can not win, however he will not surrender to this cruel disease. ALS is an insidious disease, with relentless progression. Without a cure, and without treatments. ALS patients are at the mercy of this horrific fatal disease. The medical community offers, assistive technologies and or medical devises that offer some relief from the devastating paralysis that he has to endure.

ALS is a physically debilitating disease. Emotionally, a deeply humbling disease. Battling the effects of ALS can be physically and emotionally challenging as well as financially bankrupting.

My husband had to resign from his life long work, due to his failing health. Increased difficulty breathing, shortness of breath, loss of fine motor skills, his every failing speech, difficulty chewing and swallowing, he shows all the signs of an advanced ALS patient. Outwardly he appears ok, visible muscle atrophy can be seen on both of his hands.

However, inwardly, the relentless onset of ALS is insidious with progressive muscle weakness and or stiffness. Progressive weakness, wasting and paralysis of the muscles of his limbs and trunk as well as those that control his vital functions such as speech, swallowing and breathing.

During Brian's lifetime has always been one to offer assistance, he's always enjoyed helping people.
Even now with his failing health, he will still offer to help in anyway he can, it's just his nature, he's that kind of a guy.
