Get To Know… Recipient Jim Daniele
Every donor dollar goes directly to a Trish’s Angels beneficiary dealing with ALS.
Before his ALS diagnosis in early 2013, Jim was an avid camper, fisherman and bicyclist. The disease’s progression has since left him unable to enjoy these activities, as well as most basic day-to-day functions. He draws strength from his girlfriend and granddaughters, who provide both physical and emotional care. Learn more about Jim and other Trish’s Angels recipients by visiting our web site.

Get Involved!
Trish’s Angels relies on the support of both the corporate world and the community to succeed in our mission to help patients and families dealing with ALS. Here are some easy ways to further the cause:

Become a Corporate Sponsor. Own your own business? Work for a really great one? Corporate sponsors make a huge difference in the lives of our recipients. Contact to take your organization’s philanthropy to the next level.

Get in the Trenches. We need a small army of volunteers to staff events, hand out flyers or host fundraising events of any size in your city. Contact to get involved on a level that’s right for you.

Donate Goods or Services. Please consider offering items or experiences for silent auction, live auctions or prizes at one of our upcoming events. Some ideas include: time share use, gift or restaurant certificates, concert or other event tickets or free services (massage, salon, etc.) To get the ball rolling fill out this easy donation form.

Donate Funds. As always, we invite you to visit our web site to make a secure online donation of any monetary value. We couldn’t do what we do without you.

Trish’s Angels In Action
We’ve been busy generating awareness at events like the 2014 MDA Walk in Orange County, where we were honored to meet recipient Kelley Patterson and her family in person. The ALS Research Symposium Meeting (hosted by the Orange County chapter of the ALS Association) was informative and eye-opening. Our leadership enjoyed meeting other recipients Hans Pfeffer and Jim Daniele at this event.
