How to Support the J7

Spread the love.

Giving Financially 

Since April 14, 2020, many generous people have supported Brian's family in various ways. Here’s how your donations have helped:


- Made their house handicap accessible

- Installed an outdoor electric lift

- Provided a power wheelchair

- Covered out-of-pocket medication costs

- Purchased a handicap accessible van

- Supplied many assistive devices

- Funded family adventures at Brian’s request

- Paid for a caregiver for 40 to 60 hours a week


We're marking four years since Brian's ALS diagnosis in April 2020. Last year’s successful Blove.4-14 fundraiser made a big impact, thanks to your generosity. Now, we’re rallying our community again, believing in its strength.


Since Brian’s tracheostomy eighteen months ago, adjusting to life on a ventilator has been challenging. Today, he’s embracing life anew. His recent speech at The Moth Mainstage in Brooklyn moved the audience to tears, showing his resilience. We’re excited to amplify Brian’s message of love through his upcoming memoir.


Our annual expenses total around $210,000 for medical costs, equipment, and ongoing support for Brian and his family. This year, our goal is to raise $120,000 starting on April 14, 2024, relying on community unity. Imagine the impact if each of us contributes a little. That’s where you come in.


Here's how you can help:

1. Make a personal donation of at least $14.

2. Ask 10 friends to do the same.


This simple request can have a profound ripple effect. Every contribution matters, and together, we can make a significant difference.
