In early 2016 I received a diagnosis of ALS. Subsequent tests revealed overlapping conditions that have together led to a loss of mobility and dexterity. Although conventional medicine has no cure for ALS, there are alternative therapies that are known to slow or reverse symptoms. None of these therapies are covered by insurance. It is to help defray the cost of these therapies that an account has been set up at Islanders Bank for a medical fund. If you would like to donate to this fund, you may contribute in person or by mail to Islanders Bank, 475 Fern St, or PO Box 699, Eastsound, WA 98245. Please direct funds to the Kurt Thorson Medical Fund. Thank you.
