"“Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis ___ An Amazing Love Story” is the inspiring true story of Jerry and Peggy Weygandt who found their reason for living in a sentence of death. Together, they raised his four and her two sons and formed a solid marriage and business partnership. An electrician by trade, Jerry saw life as going his way, until he began to lose muscle strength. He became unable to raise his arms, use his legs to support his body or hold up his head. In 2003, Jerry Weygandt was diagnosed with ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. Since then, he and his devoted wife Peggy have seen his terminal illness as their mission to witness to God’s presence and love in the midst of hardship. Their goal is to inspire others to tenaciously live life to the fullest possible and to raise awareness of the struggles encountered by persons handicapped with a life threatening illness.
