My mother, Wanda Dyer, was the most optimistic, kind, lively woman. She was always kind and patient and full of laughter. She was a teacher for over 35 years and I still run into her students who had the privilege of being in her classroom. They always say “she was my favorite teacher!” To that I say mine too. She was diagnosed with ALS in April of 2013. We lost her to the disease a mere 2 years later in November of 2015. Throughout her battle with ALS she remained optimistic, patient, and kind. Even on her last days she managed to find the strength to smile. She was and will forever be my biggest teacher.

I met Ron Hoffman after my mother’s passing thru a friend in the ALS world. From the moment I met Ron our purpose was in alignment; help those battling with ALS find a better quality of life. My mother was able to have equipment and care that many do not have access to. Ron’s mission and now mine is to help patients and families get what they need when they need it. I am forever grateful to have found Compassionate Care ALS and this opportunity to run in honor of my mother will be one of my life’s proudest moments.
