We are learning to cherish every moment, celebrate small victories and laugh whenever we can.  We will all navigate this ALS journey with family, friends, love and most importantly hope.

1960-2015

Friends,


On March 12, 2015, a bright light left this world.  In what seems to be the twinkling of an eye, a force of nature has moved on.  Despite all she endured, Cathy was thinking of others along the way.  Her caring soul left us with a wish that others in need have help when needed.

 

Catherine’s Crew Campaign to benefit Compassionate Care ALS (CCALS) has been formed to fulfill that wish.  The motto of the Crew is Family – Friends – Love – Hope.  ALS inexorably takes all of these away and it is Hope that deserts us first.  It is not the end, but the journey that drains us. 

 

Please join our family in supporting this most worthy organization as they embark on a major capital campaign to help those in need.  We thank you for helping to fulfill Cathy's wish.

Why CCALS?

 

Cathy’s ALS journey was eased through help of Compassionate Care ALS (CCALS), Falmouth, MA.

 

Whether it was guidance based on experience, the loan of specialized equipment or just someone with which to talk, CCALS ensured that Cathy did not have to make the journey alone.  In a time when we are at our most hopeless, CCALS is there.  This was so true for Cathy. 

 

Your donation will go toward building an ALS Education and Retreat Center to better meet the needs of those individuals living with ALS.  This will be a multi- purpose facility where people can learn from each other, counsel and escape the stress of every day life.
