Honestly, this would be pivotal opportunity for SunnyStrong as an organization and as a patient advocate for the ALS community. The opportunity to attend this conference, to participate in the roundtable discussions with top companies in the Healthcare Industry, and to use my voice for this community of fighters would be life changing. Please help me further our reach while raising awareness for ALS.
