Benefit for Debbie Collin On May 26, 2015 Debbie, was diagnosed with ALS and has had a very rapid and steady progression through the stages of this disease. She requires mechanical assistance to breathe and cough and mobility is limited. On top of the many emotional challenges the family must face, wheelchair ramps, assist bars and a new shower are just the beginning changes necessary for her home to be habitable. Medicine, supplements and food that Debbie also requires is quite costly. In short, monetary assistance would greatly ease the burden for Debbie and her family as she battles this horrible disease. Debbie was a long-time member of the West Mountain Ski Patrol. They have offered to donate the time and facility to hold this benefit. Come join the Collin family and countless supporters for this benefit to support Debbie and the local ALS chapter on December 4 at West Mountain Ski Center. Cost is $15. Hot dogs and Hamburgers and entertainment are planned as well as a silent auction of prizes including a weekend package at Mirror Lake Inn.
