Our family at The ALS Association Greater Philadelphia Chapter mourns the loss of our dear friend Darren Daulton. On the field and in his own battle with cancer, Darren showed courage, toughness, and compassion for his teammates. That includes his teammates in the fight against ALS. We are grateful for all that he did with the Philadelphia Phillies to support the ALS cause and we will forever remember him for putting smiles on the faces of our ALS families.

The ALS Association Greater Philadelphia Chapter has been the principal charity of the Philadelphia Phillies since 1984 and we are proud to have become friends with champions like Darren during that time. Thank you Darren for all that you've done for the ALS cause.

Yesterday, The ALS Association Greater Philadelphia Chapter presented Regina Earnest with a plaque recognizing her generosity to the ALS cause through her newly established Named Fund. Regina was born in Germany where most of her family still resides. Her father, Peter Lilge, died of ALS in Germany and Regina established this Named Fund to honor her father’s bravery as a firefighter and his battle with the disease.
Appreciating the services that The ALS Association offers patient families in the United States, Regina has partnered with the Chapter not only with her generosity but as a volunteer serving on the Patient Services Committee. We deeply appreciate Regina’s dedication.

Help us welcome Alana Conwy Ann Phillips, born to Amy Phillips and Elia Einhorn, and granddaughter of our Chapter President Ellyn Phillips. Alana is named in loving memory of her grandfather Alan, maternal grandmother Ann and the ancestral Welsh town of Elia’s mother.
Everyone in the family is doing very well and, even though she’s only one month old, Alana is ready to take over the world.

#ALSPhilly40 #Day5 - July 4 weekend is a perfect time to honor our veterans, like Joe Calise, seen here with Melissa Coll at our VA Clinic at Philadelphia VA Medical Center this year. Veterans like Joe are considered twice as likely to be diagnosed with ALS as the general population and, as a result, ALS is considered a service connected disease. Thank you to all who have served our country!

#ALSPhilly40 #Day2 From one of our earliest meetings in Harrisburg with PA State Rep. Bryan Cutler back in 2008. Since then, our advocates have continued to travel to Harrisburg and other state capitols for local advocacy. Since 2012 Pennsylvania legislature has continued to fund a line item for ALS care services because of your personal stories.

Representative Cutler lost both parents to ALS and his family was cared for by Dr. Simmons and Sue Walsh at Milton S. Hershey Medical Center, so he has championed this cause in Harrisburg. Now we count many champions at every level of government because they have met and learned from our ALS families.
