I’m not sure who really helped who here; did ALS help rid the world of one more mullet or did a mullet help raise money and awareness for ALS? I guess a little of both. Though this poor, misguided young man seems to be under the impression that a mullet is a “desirable haircut,” he did good this week, so I’ll cut him some slack. (No pun intended.)

But all kidding aside, I lost my grandmother to this. It was awful and heartbreaking to watch the best lady I’ve ever known lose autonomy over her own body. I lost a woman in my life who I think I somehow might have appreciated even more in my 30’s. Now I can only wonder what I never knew to ask her.
Don’t know much about ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease)? Well, you’re in luck; It’s ALS awareness month this May. I didn’t even know that! Check out the site to learn more. http://www.alsa.org/news/public-awareness/als-awareness-month/
I know that’s two whole links in one post, but I’m just doing my part to raise awareness…sans mullet.
