LITTLE FERRY, N.J. – Little Ferry is rallying around a lifelong resident diagnosed with Lou Gehrig’s disease.
“It is becoming increasingly difficult for Dawn to access her home, where she lives with her husband, Steve, and her sons, Stephen and Shane. She is in need of a roll in shower, home modifications, and assistance in medical expenses,” states a GoFundMe campaign created to raise money for Dawn Black’s needs.
The chronic, progressive disease, also known as Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), causes severe weakness and wasting of the skeletal and bulbar muscles, the page states.
“Any donations to help assist Dawn would be greatly appreciated,” the page states.
Nearly $2,500 had been raised by Monday afternoon for the 44-year-old mother.
