On our last day of our #MakingitPossible stories we spoke to Colleen Kovaluk who lives with ALS. Colleen was diagnosed with ALS in December 2015 and has been attending the Edmonton coffee group with her husband, Peter.

"We love coming to the ALS coffee shop because of the great treats they provide. Yummy!" Colleen is known at coffee group for providing a warm welcome to new members with open arms.

Colleen's family members are also very active with the ALS community, her sister Melanie who lives in Lethbridge attends the Lethbridge WALK yearly. Her niece Nicole who got married last September made donations to the ALS Society in lieu of party favours at her wedding in Calgary.

Colleen and Peter also love spending time with their friendly dog, Kona who is just as warm and pleasant as his owners. Thank you Colleen and Peter for being such a bright presence at each month's coffee group.
