Momma Mary Foundation (Cake Boss Mom) to Host Gala to Fight Lou Gherig’s Disease October 23rd

Out of a tragedy comes inspiration and a positive community response….

A new organization The Momma Mary foundation is having a fundraiser outside of Hoboken but it is related to Hoboken’s first family of cakes the Valastro Family. Mary Valastro, aka the Cake Boss’ mother has recently found out that she has Lou Gherig’s Disease and is doing something about it. Her and her son Buddy have created a foundation to raise awareness and raise money to help fight this disease. Details on the gala are below….

Buddy Valastro & Carlo’s Bakery

Present The Momma Mary Foundation

On October 23, 2012, Buddy Valastro and his mother Mary will be hosting their first annual Momma Mary Foundation event! Join the whole famiglia in promoting research of ALS at the first Annual gala of the Momma Mary Foundation.
Momma Mary Foundation’s 1st Annual Gala Dinner is taking place on Tuesday, October 23, 2012.
The event will be held at the Rockleigh Country Club in Rockleigh, New Jersey with an expected attendance of over 500 guests.
Mary Valastro (Momma) was recently diagnosed with ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) or commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease. Our mission is to help spread ALS awareness to the many who are uninformed and to stand by Momma.
This will give her the support she deserves during this very difficult time of her life. The Foundation is  dedicated to creating awareness about the impact caused by this disease and raising enough support to ultimately find a cure. Their  goal is to raise over $500,000. The proceeds will benefit both ALS WORLDWIDE and the University of Massachusetts ALS Champion Fund, where the Mary Valastro fund has been established.
Momma Mary has inspired all of the Valastro family to become the people we are today. She is the foundation of the family and they are so grateful to have a wonderful, strong, compassionate woman in their lives. She has shown the family how to live life to the
fullest and they want to take this moment to give back not only to her, but to everyone affected by this disease. At this time, they hope we can all come together as a community in support of this cause.

  2. A friend of mine had ALS and he was helped tremendously by a doctor who also practiced alternative medicine. He gave my friend intravenous drip transfusions of gluthatione which improved the quality of his life. I cannot refer you to him because unfortunately the doctor died April 2012. However, I'm certain another alternative doctor can do the same. Pls research "gluthatione" and alternative medicine.

  3. My prayers are with you. I loss my mother in 1997 to this dreadful disease. I was blessed that my mother was able to write her thoughts down until the day she died. I pray your efforts will be successful for finding a cure. No one should ever have to suffer from ALS. God Bless you and your family.

  4. I've watched all the seasons up to season 5 of cake boss, and you looked amazing. I have lost 3 family members in my life, and I'm only 11, so all my prayers go out to you. I hope you will pull through and come out strong in the end, because you have your whole family, and Especially your son Buddy. <3

  5. This disease if horrible!!!! Our family too was affected by this monster. My father was diagnosed with ALS in October of 2012. He's currently on the drug that prolongs life for a few months, but has also researched on the internet different natural remedies and is trying coconut oil now. Our family is constantly praying that there will soon be a cure, and God willing may it be some day soon, before too many more lives are lost.

  6. So terribly sad for you and your family for your moms diagnosis, but buy you guys having your own show this has many avenues to bring alot of awareness to this horrible disease, as well as your family being able to get her the best care available and possibly pushing for more research hopefully a cure someday..
