The Ice Bucket Challenge for ALS

Our friend Larry Machula from Saskatoon in Canada has developed this disease.

Larry was once a vibrant, exciting, entrepreneurial personality. Larger than life, but unfortunately was struck down with this devastating  disease.

Larry took up the challenge and then in turn challenged many celebrities one of which was the Rolling Stones.

Bill Wyman of the rolling stones  accepted.

I then accepted the challenge of my good friend Trish from the UK.

Here are the video’s in sequence.

I was unable to download the video of Trish accepting her challenge for some reason. Anyhow here is my acceptance of the challenged from her.

I will now be sending my donation direct to http://www.youcaring.com/medical-fundraiser/help-larry-ride-again/194167. We are trying to raise enough money to purchase a van for Larry so that he is more mobile and of course this van will be passed on to others that are in need of such a vehicle to give them better quality of life.

Help Larry Ride Again

Larry Machula has been a friend of my husband for 33 years and for me about 10 years. It has been painful to watch a disease take a vibrant, positive, exciting personality and turn him into a quadriplegic state. Larry fought this disease with the greatest of courage and still remains mentally alert and determined to continue his life to the best of his ability.

Larry has a goal to be able to purchase a van that he is able to be transported in and around the countryside to encourage others of like situation and continue to succeed in business and to keep a certain amount of independence and pride.

You can help make this possible for Larry at “You Caring.com” and make a donation that will help him reach his goal.
