This past weekend I took part in the annual Walk to DeFeat ALS in Los Angeles, with The ALS Association Golden West Chapter. This was my 12th year participating in the walk, and it’s a very bittersweet day for my family. On Sunday October 19th, at Exposition Park, near USC in downtown Los Angeles, I set up my massage booth. This was the third year providing massage at the ALS Walk, and I feel so honored to do so, as it’s very near and dear to my heart.
Watching all of these #ALSIceBucketChallenge is bittersweet. It makes me so happy that so many people around the world now know what ALS is, because many people had no idea before this challenge went viral. Plus watching videos of people dumping ice water on their heads is pretty funny, so how could I not watch it? ….On the other hand, it has made me tear up because it makes me miss my Dad more and more.
