The Puls Family

We’re the Puls and Beecher Family. God brought our families together 14 years ago. What a gift - God is so kind. A year ago this past January Mark got the first diagnosis of ALS, a terminal illness for which there is no cure. Seeking a second opinion, we were referred to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN. There we would receive a second diagnosis of ALS. We were advised to go make memories and to start preparing for the disease that will eventually take everything away from Mark…including his life.

It’s been just over a year since that diagnosis. Mark is now completely wheelchair bound. His breathing and strength continue to weaken daily. God has given us so many blessings and graces in the journey. Thank you so much for your kindness and thoughtfulness in considering to help us out. Everything helps with the carrying of this cross. Please pray for us as we do our best to do God’s will.
