Shaken by the news that her brother had been diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) in 2009, Lynn Patterson vowed to do all she could to help fund research, increase awareness and help others living with and affected by this neurodegenerative disease. Unfamiliar with the disease, Lynn was shocked to learn that ALS, commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease affects as many as 30,000 people annually. With more than 5,600 people being newly diagnosed each year. It was imperative to find a cure!
To facilitate her promise Lynn spent many nights brainstorming ideas; and soon a dream was formed. Lynn’s daughter, Lowery, a gifted vocalist had performed with her friends for many years doing musical theatre. Why not formally bring them together to help raise money for ALS?
With the help of friends and family, The Küren Girls, a non-profit grassroots organization was born. Founded in 2010, The Küren Girls is comprised of five young performers who volunteer their free time to sing and perform to help raise money to find a cure for the disease. Each month The Küren Girls record a new song together which can be found and purchased on CD Baby, Itunes and Amazon.com.
While their main mission is to help raise awareness and funds to find a cure for ALS, The Küren Girls also want to spread hope to both those living with and affected by this disease. It is their belief that ALS is not incurable but merely underfunded and with the help of others will one day be a disease of the past.
