It was a beautiful day as you can see and I am so grateful to my team for travelling from Calgary (Keith!), Toronto, all over Quebec, and of course Ottawa!
It was such a pleasure to meet many people living with ALS whom I have connected to via social media and those who have searched out my blog. I had no idea how many people actually read this! It was so touching to meet you all in person and now that I know you look to this blog for help, I will be more diligent in my writing.
Special thanks to Veronique at Social for hosting our beautiful and touching lunch. Congratulations to your amazing mom Lise, who though just diagnosed a few months ago, has already advocated on behalf of ALS by participating in a CTV News interview as well as an Ottawa Citizen interview, well done!
Also, special thanks to the Brookstreet Hotel for donating a night's stay for the silent auction.
Our ALS community is a group of loving and fierce warriors! Impossible to name you all but know you are always in my heart.
