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 (www.pickals.org). 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.
