Portland Fire Personnel "Locked Up" to Benefit MDA


“Fun Warrants” were issued by the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) for the arrest of Portland Fire & Rescue’s (PF&R) Captain Mike Glenn, Battalion Chief Jim Forquer, Senior Apparatus Maintenance Supervisor Mike Bartell, and Firefighter Lisa Fivian.

On July 28, 2010, Mike G., Jim, Mike B., and Lisa were hauled off to MDA jail for a good cause. In order to make bail, participants spent the morning making last minute phone calls to co-workers and friends trying to raise over $2,000 each.  "Inmates" spent weeks beforehand raising money that would be donated directly to the local Chapter of the MDA.  MDA Jail bail funds will assist MDA in paying for kids to attend camp, receive wheelchairs, leg braces, special medical procedures, and support research to find a cure for the 43 neuromuscular diseases that MDA covers, including Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), often referred to as "Lou Gehrig's Disease". 

After a very comfortable ride to jail, and a few hours behind bars, Mike G., Jim, Mike B., and Lisa were released back into society after raising $7,200 in contributions for MDA!

Congratulations to all MDA Jail participants!

“I was diagnosed with Lou Gehrig's disease at the age of 56,in Jan of this year. I was approved by my neurologist to try feasible alternatives to my current prescribed medication in the hope of improving my quality of life. and I have to say this natural treatment is a 100% game changer for anyone with ALS. It has been a complete turnaround with my balance, mobility, double vision, swollen feet, speech and difficulty swallowing this is the best that I've felt in years. VISIT www. kycuyuhealthclinic. com Thank You Kycuyu. Bonnie Lundberg”

My father was diagnosed with ALS in the summer of 2013;  His initial symptoms were quite noticeable. He first experienced weakness in his right arm and his speech and swallowing abilities were profoundly affected. We all did our best to seek help for this disease, no medications they prescribed worked ,we were all scared we might lose him due to his condition, as he had been his brother's caregiver a few years earlier for the same disease before he passed. doctor recommend natural treatment from multivitamin herbal cure for his ALS we have no choice to give a try on natural organic treatment ,this herbal cure has effectively reverse my father condition ,losing his balance which led to stumbling and falling stop  after the completing the herbal supplement which include his weakness in his right arm and his speech, home remedies from multivitamincare. org  is the best although their service is a little bit expensive but it worth it, they save lives.

My husband had ALS, first symptom was weakness in his fingers, one day, we had a dream life with early retirement and then, when we went to find out about the weakness, our whole world almost changed. There are so many things that can be said abt the suffering and frustration of people with ALS, we look back now and realize in many ways how lucky we were to found Multivitamin herbal cure that was able to get rid of my husband ALS disease totally, we had time to enjoy life and above all we all had time to also share this great testimony , many people lose loved ones without closure. I can’t imagine going thru all that you or your family had to live with daily, do not hesitate to contact for ALS cure

I was diagnosed with bulbar ALS in the summer of 2019; My initial symptoms were quite noticeable. I first experienced weakness in my right arm and my speech and swallowing abilities were profoundly affected. The Rilutek (riluzole) did very little to help me. The medical team at the ALS clinic did even less. My decline was rapid and devastating.if it were not for the sensitive care and attention of my primary physician I would have been deceased,There has been little if any progress in finding a cure or reliable treatment. Acupuncture eased my anxiety a bit. Our primary physician recommended me to www. kycuyuhealthclinic. com and their amazing ALS treatment. My symptoms including muscle weakness, slurred speech and difficulty swallowing disappeared after 4 months treatment!  The herbal treatment is a sensation.
