AAFAME has a quick turn around project where we need volunteers next Thursday, Friday and/or Saturday to help build a ramp for the Texas Ramp Project. See details below for time & location.
Texas Ramp Project (TRP) received a referral from the ALS Association of Texas for a client who was recently diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease) at age 56. He and his wife were both truck drivers before the diagnosis but had to sell their truck when his condition started deteriorating. The social worker who submitted the referral said the couple is living in a trailer owned by a relative and they are struggling with medical bills, in addition to the fatal diagnosis.
