Put yourself in the shoes of a person diagnosed with ALS. Imagine being stripped of your physical ability, and not being able to do anything about it.
Imagine being told there is no cure for a disease you have. Imagine you were told this disease will take your ability to return a hug to a loved one, or even to simply say hello.
What would you do? How would you prepare your mind for the mental battle knowing that much of your physical ability will no longer be of any use to you?
It’s pretty damn difficult to imagine these scenarios, much less live a life where these scenarios are actually a reality. Today, nearly 30,000 Americans are living with ALS, and more than 5,600 people are diagnosed with this disease every year.
One of these people is Steve Gleason, whose goal is to not only find a cure and raise awareness for ALS, but to also help those with ALS continue to live a purposeful life. In the video, Steve says,
“After my diagnosis, I was determined to gather the right support, the right technology, and continue living a purposeful life despite the progression of the disease.”
Well, as stated before, Mind.Set.Go. will show some support for Team Gleason and join in on Steve’s determination to help raise awareness for ALS. Our support as a Team has the ability to help not only Steve Gleason, but everyone else suffering from this disease.
The simple purchase of a Mind.Set.Go. Tee when they become available online in a couple of weeks will benefit Team Gleason. 30% of the first month’s sales will be donated back to The Team Gleason Foundation!
Yes, we are more than just a blog. We can’t wait to start giving back, and we thank you for your patience and hope you are just as excited to start making a positive difference with us! We are a building a brand that gives back and serves as your reminder to Think Positive, and The Team Gleason Foundation is the first foundation in which we will give back to.
The more people we have on our team, then the stronger our message and ability to give back will be! The inspiration and meaning behind the first Tee will be announced next week, so be sure to check it out and spread the word! Thank you, and have a great rest of the week.
Think Positive. Support Team Gleason.
Think Positive. Live Positive.
