75 years ago, ALS struck Yankee great Lou Gehrig, Baseball’s Iron Horse; shocking and dismaying, it still burdens his name.
And, now, Evan Yegelwel, our great friend and law partner, is batting against ALS. The disease has stolen his speech and hampers his movement. He knows he won’t hit a homerun against the disease – ALS never loses. But he’s at the plate and swinging for the fences anyway. We all can help by being at the ballpark.
Please save the date, Sunday, May 21st, at 3pm, the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp are joining Evan and his team to take on ALS.
Together, we can all take a swing against ALS. 75 years and still no prevention, no treatment, no cure. Let’s go to bat!
