Michael LeRoy had heard the term ALS before, as his grandfather was diagnosed with, and courageously battled, the disease. Years later, once he was in a position to do so, Michael LeRoy of Florida began to donate all that he could to Team Gleason, The Gleason Initiative, and the ALS Foundation. These are all charitable organizations that work to eradicate the ALS disease and support those who are diagnosed with and managing the disease.
ALS is a neurodegenerative disorder that worsens over time. Michael LeRoy wanted to get involved so he could assist in finding a solution for this life stealing disease. Michael LeRoy of Florida now donates his resources to such organizations, to combat and find a cure for ALS.
Michael LeRoy wants the public to be aware that ALS can affect a wide range of people, although many are between the ages of 40 to 70. Michael LeRoy of Florida has learned through his work with the ALS Foundation that the first warning sign of ALS is often muscle weakness. Symptoms can vary, but if you are experiencing a loss of fine motor skills function, abnormal fatigue of the arms and/or legs, muscle cramps and/or slurred speech, please speak with your physician as soon as possible and mention that you are concerned about ALS.
