My brother was diagnosed with ALS 2 1/2 years ago. Rather than complain and be depressed, he started a non-profit organization to raise money for ALS research. His organization is PICKALS ( He used to make pickles and then decided to make pickles for ALS awareness and to raise money for research.

He is using a scooter now, but his hands are getting weaker every day. Right now he can help monitor the making of pickals (a company in NJ donates one day/week to making pickals), but without a van, he will be totally housebound. He has raised $1000’s and $1000’s and this fundraising needs to continue to find a cure. PLEASE consider donating a van to my brother and his wife. No one is more deserving than him.
