  1. My boss found this card at our restaurant this week. She found it under our reservation book, so someone did a great job hiding it 🙂 We as a staff joined in the ALS ice bucket challenge last year, and also challenged our sister location to do it as well. Great and fun idea to spread awareness. This card was found at Steak & Stein family restaurant in Halifax N.S. Canada. 🙂

  6. Hi, Michael, Sorry, but I had a memory lapse (hopefully due to time zone changes as I traveled from Illinois to here) and addressed you as “Peter.” The best wishes are the same, and I apologize for the error!

  7. Found this card in the hallway of my floor (I go to BU). I picked it up and came here. I think it’s inspiring the way you and your brother are dealing with his illness. I hope he gets proper treatment so his life can be as comfortable as possible.

  8. I found the card in Terminal 3 at Ohare airport in Chicago on my way to Phoenix Arizona for Thanksgiving. Put it in my backpack and forgot to leave it when we landed so my mother is going to bring it to NH when she goes to get my grandmother for Christmas. My whole family did ice bucket challenges and sent money to ALS. We hope lots of people find cards, it made me feel special and hopefully I can convince people to visit your site and keep ALS on people’s minds so we can find a cure someday. Peace

  10. I found your card on my bedside table on Christmas day. My wife and I had an open house for family and friends and among those attending were Michael’s sister Kathy and her very close childhood friend, my sister-in-law Maura, and her husband (my brother Richard). One of them left the card. We have been with Michael on Cape Cod the past few summers when our son Aaron ran in the Falmouth Road race and raised funds for CCALS to get his bib. We are inspired by Michael’s tenaciousness and grateful to be included in this project to spread awareness of dealing with ALS.

  18. My wife just found your card in the Admirals Club at the Denver Airport. What a wonderful celebration of life. We lost my brother to ALS two years ago, and I was blessed to be able to be at his side the last two weeks of his amazing life. Our heart is with you and your family. Thank you for starting the card chain so we can be a small part of your journey. God bless.
