Wandering White's for ALS

Dave White

Hi, I am Dave White.  I lost my father Bob White to ALS in June of 1991.  He was 63 and didn’t quite make it to retirement before the disease disabled him too much to work.  He planned to do some traveling and see the country when he retired but was unable.

Now that I am retired I plan to travel the country in a unique way and bring his memory along for the ride.  In February I intend to drive from Ohio to San Diego California. Once there, with the help of a support person I intend to ride a unicycle coast to coast from San Diego to St. Augustine Florida.  I hope to raise awareness and maybe a few funds for ALS research along the way.

Bob White also left behind my four siblings Marty, Eric, Suzie, Katy and his wife Bea.  Marty frequently travels to Europe, Eric and his wife are floating around the Caribbean, and Katy travels the country as a flight attendant.  I like to think our dad sees the world through our eyes. 

What is ALS?

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), commonly known as Lou Gehrig's disease and outside the US as Motor Neuron Disease (MND) or Charcot's Disease, is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that attacks motor neurons in the brain (upper motor neurons) and spinal cord (lower motor neurons) and affects muscle function.

ALS is considered to be a fatal disease, with more than 75% patients succumbing to respiratory failure. The average rate of survival is often estimated at 30 months after symptom onset, but progression varies, and up to 10% are estimated to survive 10 years or longer.

Currently there is no cure or prevention for the disease.  The only hope to combat this affliction is through research.  Please help in anyway you can.
