Welcome to my blog. I have had ALS for 10 years now.

Since I started this blog in June 2008 I've had amazing feedback. Family, friends, people from all over North America, Australia, Scotland, England, and places I can't recall, have commented, encouraged and corresponded. I had no idea when Cynthia taught me how to set this up, how much I would love posting and how many people would read it. I want to say THANK YOU to everyone who has helped propel this therapeutic exercise into a daily routine. All of you, both friends and visitors, are now part of my blog family. Welcome.

In Memory--Lisa Olsson

See Lisa's video above.

Lisa was instrumental in helping me form my "Share the Care" group. It is with tears that I report her passing on January 30th.
She lived in Lake Oswego, Oregon. She was 45 and had a wonderful partner, Mike, and a young son, Andrew. Lisa was an inspiration on the PLM web site and had a marvellous sense of humour. We shared falls, good times, and struggles by email. One of her favorite quotes was:

"Sometimes you need to be handed a challenge bigger than anything you could have imagined in order to appreciate the goodness in every day, in the small things, and in order to discover the huge endless reservoir of courage in yourself".
