Christine has been a pillar of our community for as long as I can remember, and this charity drive will help share her story and help her family with ongoing medical expenses so she can be as comfortable as possible
Brunswick, OH (PRWEB) October 12, 2016
Brenda States Insurance Agency, a family owned insurance and financial planning firm with offices that serve communities throughout the greater Cleveland metropolitan region, is launching a charity drive in honor of Christine Rafferty-Szabo, a local grandmother of four recently diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis.
ALS, also commonly referred to as Lou Gehrig’s disease or motor neuron disease, is a degenerative condition that affects the nerves controlling voluntary muscles. Christine was diagnosed with the condition in December of last year, and has since been in the care of her devoted husband, four children, and four grandchildren.
“Christine has been a pillar of our community for as long as I can remember, and this charity drive will help share her story and help her family with ongoing medical expenses so she can be as comfortable as possible,” says Brenda States, founder and director of Brenda States Insurance Agency.
To gather assistance for Christine and her family during this difficult time, the Brenda States Insurance team is making connections with families and community leaders throughout the Cleveland area in an attempt to raise support and donations for her cause. A rally day in Christine’s honor has been scheduled for October 27th, and the team is producing a full page article that will be featured in the next edition of the agency’s monthly online magazine “Our Hometown”: http://brendastates.com/magazines/.
The charity drive to benefit Christine and her family is only the first of many planned by the Brenda States Insurance Agency. As recent affiliates of the national “Agents of Change” charitable cause involvement campaign, the firm will be selecting and assisting a new local nonprofit every other month.
Readers that want to join the Brenda States Insurance Agency for the Christine Rafferty-Szabo charity event are personally invited to make an effort to support the event by visiting the following page: http://brendastates.com/causes/relief-hope-local-family-battling-als/. Information on future charitable causes and nonprofit organizations supported by the Brenda States Insurance Agency will be posted on the firm’s permanent Community Causes listing: http://brendastates.com/community/.
