The Hope is in the Science

Welcome to my Personal Page



Sponsor Me Mary Jo Carlson

My husband of nearly 48 years, Fred Carlson, was diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease) in October 2008.

With Fred's positive attitude and the support of family & so many dear friends, we are facing this challenge.   We are learning to live one day at a time and to spend quality time with family and friends.   Live Life!

The Fiesta 5K in Baltimore, Maryland on Saturday, May 4, 2019 is to raise funds for The Robert Packard Center For ALS Research at Johns Hopkins.   It is a non-profit organization devoted solely to finding treatments and a cure for ALS.   We feel very fortunate that Fred has been able to participate in some of the clinical trials working toward those goals.

Let's be hopeful and have faith that a cure will be found SOON!

Thank you so much.
