June 20 - Joyce Berg

Today marks day 20 of ALS Awareness Month and we would like to share a story from Joyce Berg.

In March 2005, Joyce started having problems with her speech.  Then in November 2006, she was diagnosed with PLS.  This was devastating news but with her positive attitude she accepted the challenge and vowed to make the best of each day.  

The ALS Society of Alberta has helped make Joyce’s journey a little easier so she wanted to give back to the Society.  Joyce and her husband are participating in their 8th Lethbridge Walk to End ALS this year.  Over the years they have had friends and family join in the Lethbridge Walk too.  To date, Joyce has raised almost $50,000 and she hopes to reach $60,000 this year.

Joyce always has a smile on her face and says she couldn’t do it without the love and support of her family and friends.

Thank you so much, Joyce, for sharing your story with us.
