I am Katie Anderson
a family member of someone we've lost to ALS
She was kind and incredibly thoughtful, loved a wicked joke, had a hilarious laugh, and her hugs could feed your soul.
We lost my mom, Sue Yandell, to ALS on December 23rd 2022.
Losing her is like losing the sunshine in our lives. Mom was the center of everything to our entire family. Mom was a go anywhere, do anything at the drop of a hat kind of a person. She loved road trips – she would constantly turn the volume up on her favorite songs as we drove along. She loved being a grandmother and gave her girls all of her heart. She was kind and incredibly thoughtful, loved a wicked joke, had a hilarious laugh, and her hugs could feed your soul.
Losing my Mom in such a tragic way, while she was only just 66 years old, has left me looking for ways to volunteer within the ALS community in her honor. I hope that one day my daughter and I get to see the first patient with ALS cured.
