Raising money for Dennis Myrick, our friend, colleague and classmate from Vermont Law School Class of '06.

We are raising money for our friend, colleague and classmate, Dennis Myrick. He was diagnosed in 2009 with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis or ALS.

His story is inspiring as he has participated in 9 clincal trials and is currently involved in Braingate (link is to the left) of which only two people on the planet are participating in right now. He told people, "I'm in it for the science now." In order for the trial to continue, an RN from Mass Gen Hospital comes to his family's house each month to administer a cognitive test and Dennis gets 100% every time. His wife says, "he's still with us."

The local newspaper in Vermont (The Caledonian-Record) wrote two articles last month, The Dennis Myrick Story, Part 1 and Part 2. (links to the left)

We want to help him and his family with any medical expenses. Thank you!
