Cindy was diagnosed with lymphangioleiomyomatosis or LAM, a rare terminal lung disease which destroys lung tissue in women. There is no cure and it gets worse over time.

ALS Awareness Month – My Garden May 26, 2015

We’re coming to the end of ALS Awareness Month, and for all those who suffer from the disease, it’s something of which they can never be unaware. ALS has so thoroughly consumed their lives that there’s little room for anything else. In My Garden, Ed shares his fear of having to quit his job as a pastor because ALS would eventually rob him of one of his greatest assets—his voice. Who are you if you can’t do the thing you…

“I’m not thankful for ALS. But in the midst of it, I can be thankful.” May 18, 2015

  “I’m not thankful for ALS. But in the midst of it, I can be thankful.” Every time we hear from someone who has been impacted by Ed’s Story, we’re overwhelmed with gratitude all over again.

She told us that she is not a Christian and even though she never reads or views “Christian” material,…

ALS Awareness Month – Be There May 11, 2015

Ed teaches us in the third film of the series, Be There, that sometimes it is best to simply “show up and shut up” with those who are suffering, in order to bring the best possible encouragement and comfort. During the month of May, we’ll be donating 10% of Ed’s Story proceeds…

ALS Awareness Month: Finding Hope May 5, 2015

Every 90 minutes someone is diagnosed with ALS. They don’t know what causes it and there is no cure. When you are told you are dying and the process of dying is awful, there is not much hope in that. Ed Dobson was given 2 to 5 years to live and that was over 13 years ago. Although Ed is now on a feeding tube and needs full time care, he remains full of hope. May is ALS Awareness month…
