Our ALS caregivers are heroes who go above and beyond to care for their loved ones. Hear about some of our amazing caregivers from their loved one's perspective.
Mike Krummel. He has had to take over so much around the house. Plus work full time. Since I broke my wrist back in June, he has literally had to do most everything for me. He didn’t hesitate and adapted very quickly to our new routine. I’m slowly gaining a little bit of “independence” back since my wrist is healing, but he’s still right there for me. - Lesley Krummel
"My sister-in-law Danielle Mikunda. When they found out that my brother Russ Mikunda was diagnosed with ALS back in 2013, she was always there for him. I was also there for him in 2014 when he started going down hill. Because of the disease, she quit working and stayed home with him and she took care of him until the 25th of May 2021 when he passed away. He was a good husband to her." - Edward Mikunda
"When my Dad was diagnosed with ALS in 2017, it was a devastating day for us. From that day on, our Mom dedicated herself to be our Dad's full time caregiver. Our Dad was not comfortable with anybody, especially with his personal care. I know that when our Dad started going down hill it was hard for Mom, but she never stopped caring for him. When our Dad requested to go to the Philippines to see the rest of his siblings and family, we knew it would be difficult to fly overseas. Our Mom did not hesitated and still flew our Dad with my brother. It took 24 hours to get him to the Philippines. She continued to take care of my Dad around the clock until my Dad passed away in 2019. He suffered for two years with ALS. Our Mom never left his side until the last second of our Dad's life. We are so lucky and grateful to have her as our Mom." - Geneveih Lata
