This is really exciting news! I have lots of voice recordings from my Digital Media classes.
This news is both moving and a profound reason for hope! When I was diagnosed three years ago, voice banking would have taken eight hours, and I simply didn’t have the strength – or money – for such an endeavor. As you will see in the video, this company was able to recreate this man’s voice with only three hours of recording. Maybe one day, my half hour of recording will be enough to get my voice back!

I know everyone gets so busy around the holidays but I am sending out another plea, take a minute and please call the number in the link below. It could make a huge difference in so many lives. On a personal note, this could mean the difference between me completely losing the use of my arms and legs and staying functional with what little I have left. Many have asked me if there’s anything they can do for me, how about a couple minutes of your time…
Please share with your friends.
In the words of my dear friend Dolly Boehm Malinski, who is now an angel with God, “Love to all”
Ailsa has such a positive attitude, I see myself in so much of her story. I have a goal to follow her example, accepting the hand life has dealt me with grace and dignity.
It is pretty easy to get in myself into a pitty pot as I am faced with new and different challenges daily. One thing about ALS, every day you wake up is a surprise, some days good, some bad. I try to find one blessing in every day and as I look around me it’s not hard.
I also miss the simple things like cleaning, cooking, driving, singing and dancing. I especially miss being able to get up and go anywhere, anytime I want, saddened as it further adds to the loss of my independence. I try to focus on the things I can do, sharing stories like Ailsa’s and never losing hope. I too am hanging on, waiting for that elusive cure.
Thanks Ailsa, for your inspiration.
