ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) is a thief. It robs its victims of the ability to move arms and legs, to eat without choking, to breathe. Eventually, this insidious disease robs them of life, and steals the future from their families.
One of our founding partners, Bob Fuerst, is on the board of directors of the Jim “Catfish” Hunter Chapter of the ALS Association. His dedication to this very worthwhile cause rallies us all to support the activities of the ALS Association.
For the third year, HensonFuerst Attorneys is proud to have supported the annual Outreach Professional’s Conference. Sue Humphries, Director of Care Services for the local chapter of the ALS Association, filled us in on what happened at this year’s event:
We had a wonderful conference and the evaluations continued to be complementary of the education we provide. This year’s main topic addressed Artificial Ventilation as a choice for ALS patients, presented by Theresa Johnston-Crews, RN, BSN, MBA, and Connie Paladenech, RRT, RCP. Our social workers around the state find we are dealing with this choice more often than we used to, so the information was timely and valuable.
Thank you to all the tireless people who run the Jim “Catfish” Hunter Chapter. You make lives better.
