Sandy believes each day is a new opportunity

"It's been two years from my ALS diagnosis date and over three years since I noticed my first symptoms.

While my lifestyle has changed my mindset hasn't. Even though I no longer wake up in my own home, I awake with the same resilient attitude of hope. I'm walking and talking a little slower and can not prepare my own meals but I still crack a joke or two and keep on smiling.

I'm approaching each day as an opportunity. Every day I am grateful to have a family and friends who not only push me but encourage me. There is no way I can exist without their support.

I'm also thankful for groups like ALS Worldwide that provide information and resources that actually help me.

My ALS diagnosis is not my death sentence it's my awakening to living my life."

Sandy is the epitome of strength. She is not letting ALS define her and is creating a positive life with the people she loves. To continuously meet the difficulties of ALS every day is what inspires others and we hope she inspires you just as much!
