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.
