My Right To Try:  I had just returned from my annual ski trip with the boys. Skiing is a passion of mine. Before ALS, I was quite active. You name it, I'd play it. Good or bad, I'm in. What I enjoyed most was playing anything with 4yr old daughter and 9yr old son. Now I sit in a wheelchair and watch. That is the principle reason why I need the Right To Try. We haven't had enough time together. I have to do something. I'm trying now but there aren't any options.  http://www.pitch4pete.com/

I've dedicated the remaining years of my life, driven to accelerate access to potential life-saving treatment for Canadian ALS patients.  I am a founding member of the 'Right To Try Act', a major contributor in advancing the leading ALS science in Toronto via 'Pitch4Pete', and a member of Canada's leading National ALS Charity, the Adaptive Canuck ALS Foundation.   www.alscanuck.org

Support the 'Right to Try Act'.  Please consider making a donation of $5, $20, $50 or whatever you can.  Your contribution helps cover associated costs to retain representation, travel to meet with MP's, social, online & traditional media communications.  Currently, these costs are being paid by Canadian patients living with a terminal illness.   It is through the help and generosity of people like you that we are able to continue our work. Your compassionate support truly makes a difference!
