Listen in to life updates with AxeALS founder Amanda Stevens, wife & caregiver to Eric Stevens.

Here I chat with Amanda Stevens, wife & caregiver to Eric Stevens – former NFL player & L.A. Firefighter, both introduced to us on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in 2019. Amanda and Eric were married only one month when Eric was diagnosed with ALS at a young 29 years old. We fell in love with this young couple as they appeared on the Ellen show three times and even were on to announce that they were expecting a baby. In the past 4 years since receiving Eric's ALS diagnosis, Amanda has dedicated her life to caring for her husband and their daughter. Amanda and Eric have also been inspired to help others through their non profit called AxeALS Foundation. Their mission is to raise awareness and funding for ALS treatments and clinical trials; to help ALS patients and their families live as full and normal lives as possible and to support ALS research. In this episode, Amanda shares her journey, motivation and updates on Eric and life with ALS. Tune in for this sweet encouragement in the face of huge adversity. Thank you for listening and sharing this episode with a friend.

Hugs, Lorri

I’ve been inspired by so much to stay focused on the positive. I’m dying to tell you about what gives me strength, makes me smile and keeps me hopeful – in hopes of inspiring you too!
