Think 5: Fifth Annual Walk Steps Up for those Living with ALS & MS
By Record Staff | CHELSEA RECORD, October 4, 2013
Patrick O’Brien was just 30 years old when he was diagnosed with ALS. An award-winning filmmaker, Patrick had made moving films about the disabled, never imagining that he would be among that population. Today, nine years after his diagnosis, Patrick is still writing and producing thought provoking films thanks to his indomitable spirit, revolutionary technology and the skilled, nurturing staff at the Leonard Florence Center for Living (LFCL).
The fifth annual ALS & MS Walk for Living honors Patrick and the other ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease) and MS (multiple sclerosis) residents by raising funds for improved healthcare at the Foundation’s facilities and residences.
