Forgive me for asking for help, but please rally around this cause to help my family with ongoing medical expenses.

As you know friends and supporters I have ALS Arterial Lateral Scoloisis (ALS) commonly known as Lou Gehrig's disease.  The last year has been difficult as I had worked up until October of 2013, however in November I caught Pneumonia and ended up in the hospital.

I have been able to live at home with my wife Kim and my two 15 year old daughters. I breath with the use of a portable vent and I'm only able to be in a portable wheelchair or my bed.

My wife and kids provide all my care with the exception of when my wife works. When she is at work Monday through Friday we use a home health provider to help. When I say my wife provides my care I mean she feeds me as I have no use of my hands or arms, she shaves me and baths me as well as handles my other hygiene needs.

My mind is perfectly fine and I'm trying to keep busy and volunteer my skills despite my inability to speak. I'm able to communicate through an amazing device called "EyeGaze" that allows me to use my eye movements to create written text on my computer, either for anyone close by to read on screen and for me to send through e-mail or text messages.

In order to live we need help from a home health provider which is our biggest expense and runs between $3000 and $3500 per month. We need support to continue paying this to survive.  Although our goal in this fund raiser is $10,500 this will only support us for three months. We are trying to find those who can support us on an ongoing basis not only for a one time donation. A small number of people giving can make this successful and make it easier on a few.

My courage and inspiration comes from faith in God and from my time with my family. Please answer our prayers with support if you can. If you can help financially, you can give on this site or for avoiding fees for large donations you can make a check payable to

“Hardin’s Heroes Fighting ALS”
Addressed to 2606 Black Oak Circle, Clarksville, IN 47129.

Also if you can give every month you can mail a check to the above address.

Thank you for your support and grace.
