Hiya lovely Blong Peeps ! It’s that time of year again. Really , again ? Yup ! This is our 7th Annual ALS Skydiving event. Our first was at the end of April in 2010 when Mazie had just joined our family. She weighed only nine pounds and was super mellow. She had been traumatized before we rescued her.
Ennyhoo, here’s the deal-leo:

What and who is ALS TDI ? Well, take a peek at this : www.als.net
Stephen Heywood was diagnosed with ALS at age 29. After finding no treatment options, his brother, James Allen Heywood, realized that a gap existed in the preclinical development of therapeutics for ALS. In 1999, he founded the ALS Therapy Development Institute in the basement of his family’s Newton, MA home to bring effective treatments to people living with ALS as quickly as possible. Although Stephen is no longer with us, this same sense of hope and family drives every decision made at the Institute today.
The ALS Therapy Development Institute and its scientists actively discover and develop treatments for ALS. We are the world’s first and largest nonprofit biotech focused 100 percent on ALS research. Led by people living with ALS and their families, we understand the urgent need to slow and stop this disease.
One of ALS TDI’s slogans is this: “ALS is not an incurable disease , it is and underfunded one.” I tend to agree with that. It makes good sense, and it gives me hope for the next generation.
