Trend Micro Give & Match for Stichting ALS NederlandThis is the fundraising page of Jurgen de Poorter
( Inzamelactie )
Back in 1995 my father was diagnosed with ALS. When ALS is diagnosed a patient has on average 5 years to life. My dad passed away in 2000. In the 5 years of his illness we, together toke care of him at our house. During this period we came in contact with Stiching ALS Nederland and had a lot of support from their side. This resulted in participating in the Amsterdam City Swim, where all funds raised are used for scientific research. Still there is a lot of work to be done and a lot of money needed. Because of the fact that I experienced this diseas from so close the ALS stichting Nederland is a foundation that comes very close to me and we as a family are donating every year to. I hope that we as Trenders can/will contribute to this foundation to help them get closer to a cure for ALS not only for Dutch patients but for all ALS patients globally.
