Please Buy Dutch Brothers Coffee Today

Today and today only, May 9th. Dutch Brothers will donate a portion of their proceeds to the MDA/ALS Association. If you can’t visit Dutch Bros today, please visit www.danesdrive.org and make an online donation for this very worthy cause.

My Mother, Cheryl will be 51 years old next month and was diagnosed in September 2006. That day, she could still do everything we take for granted. Today, she is in a wheelchair full time, cannot walk, talk, eat or even use her arms.

    I too have photos of my mom before and my mom after (years ago). It is heartwrenching to see and experience someone you love getting worse and worse.
    I just donated- as I was wiping away tears trying to enter my information. Donate to danesdrive.org- help them find a cure for this horrible disease.
    For those of you who still have your moms, you are the lucky ones.
    J- Wish your momma a Happy Mother’s Day from me, and give her a smoochie and a hug for me!
