What would you do if you found yourself in the fight for your life, a race against time? My friend Chris Lucash was diagnosed with ALS or Amyotrophic Lateral Scherosis (aka Lou Gherig's disease) in June 2015. Despite the devastating diagnosis, Chris is sharing his story and whatever time he has left to inspire others to live purposely and passionately, and to reconnect with nature. As a red wolf biologist for the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service In coastal North Carolina, Chris has dedicated his life to saving the last population of red wolves in America from extinction at the Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge.
Chris can no longer speak, but we can speak for him. A full-length documentary about Chris' fight to save the red wolves and his battle for life against ALS is being produced by the award-winning film studio,WILDSIDES.org. You can link to Chris' story and a trailer for the upcomng film on the Crowdfunding site Indiegogo @ https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/staring-down-fate-the-documentary--2#/ or search Indiegogo.comfor Staring Down Fate.
TAMPA'S EVENT takes place THURSDAY, APRIL 21st at Four Green Fields, with a suggested minimum donation of $20 towards the making of the film, but no gift is too small. We hope to encourage similar gatherings of friends in communities across the country. Your support, or simply uplifting Chris in prayer, will help bring this powerful and inspiring film to life. I'm happy to assist interested friends afar in promoting your own informal events. How else can you help? SHARE Chris' story and the link for#StaringDownFate above. Endless gratitude coming your way ❤️
