James Caress, MD, professor of neurology, presented Karen Causby with a plaque honoring her family’s philanthropic support of Wake Forest Baptist Health’s ALS Clinic and ALS research in memory of her late husband, Tony Causby.

Tony, a resident of Morganton, North Carolina, was a patient in the ALS Clinic. He died in March 2019 at age 58, three years after his diagnosis. The Causbys’ two 16-year-old sons, Ty and Tripp, sold t-shirts to raise money for ALS research and their baseball team.
