UPDATE ON GERRY HEMPHILL

Gerry Hemphill and her family would like to sincerely thank everyone

for their

prayers, emails, letters, and support. Gerry specialized in ALS for over 30 years. Recently,

has a fantastic doctor who has Gerry’s doctor confirmed that her

ALS

is

only affecting her brain

stem at

this

time;

however,

in

time,

it will

likely affect her spinal cord as well. The rate of progression varies for everyone afflicted with ALS, so Gerry’s future remains uncertain. Gerry and her family remain positive and thankful for all the encouragement provided by members of the Association. For more information on ALS, visit http://www.alsa.org/.
