The Hope is in the Science

Welcome to My Personal Page

My sister, MaryEllen Young, passed away in the summer of 2006 after a 3 year battle with ALS.  She was kind, courageous and fought with grace. 

She lost her ability to speak several months into her diagnosis and that was followed quickly with an inability to use her body unassisted.  She had the most amazing blue eyes and they became her tools for communication.  I remember how her eyes could express all her emotions but mostly I remember how they could laugh. 

Our family misses her every day.  My daughter and I are  running this race because she can't.

We appreciate your support.
