The Lairds' Gift

Brian Laird went to doctors with complaints of back and shoulder pain in 2010 as well as trouble breathing — three weeks later he was diagnosed with ALS — better known as Lou Gehrig's disease. This neuromuscular disease slowly steals away an individual's ability to function as the muscles in the body quit working. It was Brian's dream to raise funds to help create a world-class neurological center at Community Regional Medical Center, so people won't need to travel great distances to get the neurological care they need.
