June 22 - Henri Unverricht

It is day 22 of ALS Awareness Month, and today we are celebrating the 2017 Camrose WALK for ALS Ambassador, Henri Unverricht! Thank you Henri for #MakingitPossible to raise further awareness in the Camrose area. Be sure to join us this Saturday for the Camrose WALK for ALS! Visit www.walkforals.ca for further details. 

"Without the ALS Society, I wouldn't have been able to stay at home as long as I could. It's always done on a family level. We are one big family - personal connection with the people, both family and staff. My sleep quality is very good with the bi-pap; it helped right off the bat. The moral and physical support is exceptional as well as support for the family. In the summer of 2015 I experienced shortness of breath and in May of 2016 I was diagnosed with ALS. I lived in Camrose with my wife Violet since 1993 until 2004. In 2004, we moved to Edmonton, then back to Camrose in 2012 where my wife was born and raised. I was born in Lausanne, Switzerland." - Henri Unverricht
