As part of my series about “individuals and organizations making an important social impact”, I had the pleasure of interviewing Jodi O’Donnell-Ames a certified teacher, writer, massage therapist, member of Union Fire Co. and Rescue Squad and tireless advocate for Lou Gehrig’s disease, or ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis).
She is also the founder of Hope Loves Company, a non-profit organization committed to providing educational and emotional support to children and young adults who had or have loved ones battling ALS. She lives with her husband Warren in Titusville, NJ. Their children, all young adults, have lost a parent to ALS before the age of 11. Jodi is the author of two books, The Stars that Shine and Someone I Love has ALS. She was chosen as People magazine’s, “Hero Among US” in 2015. She has appeared on the Today Show, Jersey Matters, Fox News and more. She has also given a Tedx about her life with purpose.
