Ray Spooner, a certified nurse midwife who has ushered thousands of babies into the world, took the Ice Bucket Challenge in summer of 2014 to raise awareness about ALS. At the time, ALS “was just of jumble of letters to us,” said Ray’s wife of 33 years, Rae. Soon though, those letters would take on a . . .
When Jone See, a devoted mother of five and doting grandmother to nine, was diagnosed with ALS in December 2014, her loving family and large group of friends channeled their energy into raising money for a cure through the ALS Bike Trek MN. Jone, who passed away on May 3, won’t be there to cheer the team on in person this year, but her spirit, optimism and hope for a cure lives on.
