A wonderful recognition from The ALS Association, CT Chapter!

Screen Shot 2018-05-12 at 4.06.14 PMOn Thursday, May 10 the ALS Association, CT Chapter held a great event in Westport, CT that was to be a Thank You to many in my community that have been affected by ALS and to those who are fighting in so many ways to help find that elusive cure

I was honored to be presented with the David Grimshaw Beacon of Light Award. As I continue to try to empower others to live life to it’s fullest, there’s more work to be done as an advocate and to spread awareness. We will find a cure!

On April 30th, our chapter lost a special man, Mr. David Grant Grimshaw. David served as President of the Black Rock Community Council for 4 years; he helped to establish the Burroughs Community Center in Bridgeport; he was co creator of Bridgeport’s Lobsterfest; and he was instrumental in the restoration of the Fayerweather Lighthouse at Black Rock Harbor. David was also an internationally known artist. David was diagnosed with ALS, or Lou Gehrig’s disease, on his 40th birthday. David then became chairman of The ALS Association Connecticut Chapter. Below are some examples of David’s work, as well as photos of David with close friends and family. David will be sorely missed by many.
