See more information on Don below:
This year’s Schimmy Scramble recipient is Don Harms, a husband, a father of 4 girls, a papa to 5 grandchildren, a son, a brother, an uncle, a friend and businessman, who was diagnosed with ALS in October of 2019.
Don, a man that is very hard-working and does not enjoy sitting still, enjoyed his life by owning his own business for 35+ years known as Hard Stuff Masonry. For some time, he had begun noticing some changes with his strength but it was often chalked up to his work, as masonry puts a lot of wear and tear on your body. The summer of 2019 was when he really noticed that something more was going on, as he could no longer do something he loved, and that was to trap shoot. His strength had dwindled so much, he could no longer hold up his gun. In late August, he fell, which began the process of seeing neurologists. This is when he was referred to HCMC ALS Center of Excellence for an EKG. 10 days later, he received the devastating ALS diagnosis.
Since then the family’s lives have changed dramatically. There have been many improvements needed to their house to become accessible. Currently, Don is using a walker when he can and adjusting to being in a manual wheelchair for now, when needed. He’s learning how to accept help even though he was always the one to lend a helping hand. With his wife continuing to work but being his primary caregiver, his 4 girls and 2 son-in-laws have quickly adapted to this new normal and are able to be with him at all times with the help of many family and friends. We couldn’t do this without the support of everyone in our family and community!
