Longtime Doper txobbin Diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease) RIP (updated)

Because the discussion is in a thread titled:
Advice on making a GoFundMe successful please?
http://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/showthread.php?t=888968

I feel that many people here may have missed it:

Thank you PastTense. I am awaiting mod approval to post my GFM here.

You all gave me some very good advice and links in that thread. I checked them out and we are pursuing several avenues. It was a great way to introduce my daughter and sister to the board. They were both impressed with the knowledge and caring of The Teeming Millions.

I am sorry that you are dealing with this, txobbin. I am sure it is very difficult to advocate for yourself when the illness that is causing you to need help in the first place makes so many ordinary tasks so difficult.

Did you join any of the discussion boards? There are lots of people there who have had the same issues you have and could give specific advice, unlike Dopers who could only provide general advice.

Have you heard back from the Mods?

I wish you the best.

I did join two. Those plus the ones I am in on Facebook do give great advice, plenty of discussions on solutions to various problems. It’s helpful to have several options, as what works for one doesn’t necessarily work for another. It’s a funny disease that way, with the rate of progression varying wildly.

**TubaDiva **and I have exchanged emails, it’s still making the rounds with the mods.

Thank you.

Is your contact information up to date? I sent an email, but no answer.

Txobbin passed away in September.

“Evelyn Roth Winkler, 60, of Hooks, TX, formerly of Paris, passed away Friday September 11, 2020 at her home in Hooks, after a courageous fight against ALS with family surrounded by her side. Her smile will live on forever.”

Here was her Straight Dope Gofundeme request:

My condolences! I am sorry for your loss.

Oh no, I was just thinking about her today. So sorry to hear this.

This year just keeps getting worse.

RIP, txobbin
