Hope on the Horizon for Catherine Scott
Fri, April 7, 2017, 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM PDT
Join us for a screening of the inspiring documentary, Hope on the Horizon: An Expedition for ALS, to benefit Catherine Scott, an ALS patient and tireless advocate for the ALS community.
Catherine was diagnosed with familial ALS at the young age of 31 in March of 2002. Both her mother and son were also struck by the disease, her mother sadly lost her fight many years ago. Catherine is married to the love of her life, Don, who married her after her diagnosis. A true love story. Together, they have raised two children, Vanessa and Anthony, as well as Catherine’s younger siblings, Steven and Michael, who were orphaned by their mother’s death. They’ve also opened their home and hearts to any family member in need and have a nephew, Forrest, currently living with them who they love as a son.
On August 17, 2016, Catherine underwent a tracheostomy, which happened to be scheduled on their 14th wedding anniversary. They celebrated by choosing life together that day, fighting to grow old together. The surgery and recovery were difficult and took a tremendous toll on Catherine. As a result, she is no longer able to safely get up and down the stairs with their stairlift. Every option was explored, and the best permanent solution is to install a home elevator. It is, however, an expensive option. For this worthy cause, we are fundraising, and all donations are tax-deductible.
Tickets are $25 per person. Included is light fare, beverages and a basket auction. There will also be musical entertainment, a photo booth and a caricature artist!
