Thank you to all who attended and supported the Live Every Day dinner on August 3, 2017!  It was an outstanding success!  We are grateful to John Grisham for serving as guest speaker and sharing his incredibly interesting stories.

Aaron Putnam produced a wonderful film about The Joe Martin ALS Foundation and the services we provide.  We are grateful to the Matthews and Taylor families for welcoming us into their homes to share their stories. This film was shown the first time on Thursday, August 3rd at our 3rd Annual Live Every Day Dinner. It is our hope that it will reach even further!  Please help us share our message of LIVING with ALS to help raise awareness of this disease and our work with your friends. We help people with ALS – YOU can too!

David Martin introduced John Grisham using his great sense of humor and memories of his father, Joe Martin, who wrote a letter of encouragement to Grisham just before his writing career made him a household name.  David joked, “It’s kind of like me writing Steph Curry: Dear Steph, keep shooting the basketball.”  Watch David and John Grisham’s speech here:
