July Volunteer of the Month: Christie Cozzie-Nester

A heartfelt Thank You to our invaluable volunteers who enable us to give help and hope to those whose lives have been touched by ALS. Each month one outstanding volunteer or group of volunteers who go above and beyond is recognized for this honor.

Irene Mitossis is participating in the Walk in Seaside in honor of her mom, Dimitra. Dimitra was diagnosed with ALS two years ago, at the age of 53. Irene wanted to show her mom how many people loved and supported her throughout the journey, so she created Team Nektarios.
