My favorite part of my Team Gleason Adventure was, of course as a Saints fan, attending the game with my family. It was an experience that will be remembered forever.  

My family doesn’t travel much. It was a delight to see family interaction with the locals during our visit and with rival fans.

There were some challenges as ALS is a challenge. Mine was maneuvering around. I was able to get parking passes and that helped with the trip to the Super Dome.  

The trip meant a lot to me. As I travel this journey with ALS, I am extremely grateful for the people who love me. Seeing the smiles on their faces gives me life.  

Accessibility was wonderful and everyone was kind and helpful without making me feel like an outsider

For anyone who wants to have a similar experience, my advice would be to just have fun and enjoy the memories.
