In honor of Father’s Day this year, local nonprofit Paint for a Cure will allot up to $100,000 in direct grants for individuals with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis or Lou Gehrig’s disease.
From now until June 18, Paint for a Cure will be accepting nominations for fathers battling against the physical and financial burdens that ALS brings, according to a press release.
Parenting and battling ALS come with a long list of challenges on their own, but together create even greater trials.
Eric Weinbrenner, Paradise Valley resident and the founder of Paint for a Cure, understands this struggle because he lives it every day. The number one reason that he continues to fight against the hurdles of the disease is to be around for his daughter and son, the release stated.
