I can't believe that we would lie in our graves dreaming of things that we might have been...~DMB
Thank you for visiting my Blazeman ALS Foundation page! Since 2008, I've been racing triathlon in honor of my fellow Blazeman Warriors and to all who have died and are suffering from ALS. Please click on the "home page" link above to learn more about ALS, the Blazeman Foundation, and THE original Blazeman--Jon Blais, a truly amazing human being. A few months after Jon was diagnosed with ALS, he competed in the Ironman World Championship in Kona, Hawai'i (arguably the most physically and mentally challenging feat a human being can endure), something he'd always wanted to do. When he finished, he "log-rolled" across the finish line. Fellow Blazeman warriors do the log-roll now in his honor. Sadly, Jon lost his battle against ALS in May 2007. Thank you in advance for your support & your help in educating others about the need for funding for ALS research so that science can advance to a point of understanding and ultimately curing this horrific disease. *ANY donation, no matter how big or small, will help get us one step closer to a cure.* All the best in love & life, Mickey

Goal
Despite 22 million(plus) people dying from ALS since 1869, there remains still no meaningful treatment or cure for this disease. Jon and ALS patients everywhere are basically offered the same treatment options as Lou Gehrig in 1939. Without raising awareness and funding, ALS will not receive the research efforts necessary to find a cure and will continue to strike down every person who is diagnosed with ALS...Join Jon, "fight the good fight"...Believe there will be a cure, and "others will live", bmom and bdad...jon's mom and dad.

"People do not follow titles, they follow courage. If you will just lead them onto the battlefield, they will follow you and so will I, unite us... unite the clans." - Braveheart

Blazeman Foundation for ALS Mission Statement:
1.) Raise awareness about ALS by leveraging the energy and compassion of the multi-sport community and
2.) Raise funds to "fund" research to find a cure for ALS. "so others may live."

"Since 1869, twenty one plus million people have suffered and then died from ALS." There have been no survivors.
"Believe...Pick a stronger word than Hope...Cure" -blazeman. We strive to hear words not yet spoken, "I AM A ALS SURVIVOR."
