Becky Kidd and 5 Smooth Stones hosts the 3rd Annual Raise a Glass to Kick ALS’s Ass. Join us for a night of live music from the band Almost Famous (formerly known as Secret Sauce), dancing, raffles, and fun! All to honor the Emory ALS Clinic Team.
Becky’s message, “We call ourselves team 5 Smooth Stones for the story of David & Goliath. I met my Goliath when I was diagnosed with ALS in January 2012. ALS is a part of my life, but I refuse to allow it become my life. Every day for all of us is a gift, an honor and opportunity to live with joy…ALS does not have to change that. We will live with Courage, Confidence, Preparation and Trust until Victory has been achieved.”
All monies raised from the event benefit the Emory ALS Clinic at Emory University. The Emory ALS Clinic provides multidisciplinary care to people with ALS (pALS) and their families, focusing on independence and quality of life. Emory’s team approach to ALS care and research bridges multiple disciplines and departments. They are physicians, nurses, therapists, social workers, basic and clinical research scientists, all working together, all with the same goal, but with different expertise and viewpoints. Their slogan, “Celebrate Life, Imagine a Cure,” is what they do every day.
