Thank you for visiting Team Coin of Thanks!
Teams accomplish more together! That’s true in life and especially true for those who have been impacted with ALS. I’m so proud of my team! Every one of Team Coin of Thanks members has been impacted by ALS in some way, shape or form. This group of family and friends have known each other for nearly twenty years. We have been through thick and thin together and on July 22, 2023, we Ride Unified to Defeat ALS in Mount Angel, OR!
My name is Rhonda Baumann and I am the captain of this team. I was originally diagnosed with PLS in 2013 and subsequently diagnosed with ALS in 2022. The 2023 Ride to Defeat ALS will be my fourth Ride and I am determined to participate in many more to come! I have been involved with the ALS Association Oregon/SW Washington Chapter for ten years. My family and I have witnessed the amazing benefits of the ALS Association through the years.
Your donations help the ALS Association Oregon/SW Washington Chapter with their mission to provide support to people living with ALS (pALS) and their families/caregivers like me and my family through monthly support groups, chapter grant programs, assistive technology support, caregiver support programs, support and resources for children, bereavement programs, educational outreach and the newest; a volunteer program linking local volunteers with pALS. Because of your generous donations last year, there have been enormous scientific and legislative advances for pALS. Two pharmaceutical medications were accelerated through the red-tape bureaucratic system and approved by the FDA in 2022 and made available to pALS. Both medications, RELYVRIO and Radicava have shown to slow the progression of ALS by up to 33%! I feel very fortunate to be one of many taking Radicava right now.
I am so blessed to be part of this team, coming together on July 22nd in Mount Angel for one purpose; RIDE TO DEFEAT ALS! Thank you in advance for joining us in this fight against ALS!
