got this from
Recently someone dear to my friend and many other people locally are in a very tragic situation. Our sensei's wife is diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ASL), a disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Slowly these, motor neuron cells will die which slowly destroys the brain's control over muscle movement. This eventually will lead a person diagnosed with ASL to their death.
I kindly ask as a request to take a look at our fundraiser. Any donation would help us out, in hopes to help our sensei and his wife find a place to stay, before such tragedy.
This is indeed very deep and saddening. Unfortunately, we can only do so much, at least to give them something small before the worse that may happen.

Please do what you can to help the sensei and his wife,however if you're not able to donate or don't know how to,just repost this journal and spread the word so everyone can hear and eventually someone can help donate
