Dear Family & Friends:
Ollie’s episodes have gotten significantly worse. They are more severe and last longer. (For those of you not familiar with this issue, please visit My Training Partner)
We have a team of medical specialists ready to evaluate Ollie at Boston Children’s Hospital, and we are flying him there tonight.
Please keep Ollie in your thoughts and prayers. We desperately need answers and treatment options for our Angel.
Hug your children and grandchildren. Family is everything.
Hoping for the best for Ollie, Bill.
We wish the very best for Ollie and a quick recovery.
Our prayers and best wishes are with Ollie. We hope for the best.

Dear Bill (and family),
I am the mother of a most talented son, Aki, who has PLS, and I recently learned that it often turns into ALS, aka Lou Gehrigs’s disease. I know how it is to cope with a disabled condition in a parent/family and my thoughts are with you. May God bless you all.
