We created the Phil Your Heart trust to raise money to help offset the enormous financial burden of living with ALS, including medical and equipment costs, home modifications needed to make our home wheelchair accessible, and eventual 24/7 in-home care for Phil Green.
Phil is a loving father of four wonderful children (Arianne-17, Hunter-16, Parker-12, Whitney-9) and a husband to a smart, talented, and beautiful wife (Jennifer). Phil received an ALS diagnosis in August 2018.
Even though he participated in the Ice Bucket Challenge in 2014, he really had no idea what ALS was and didn’t understand what amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is – and certainly had no idea of the devastation that it leaves in its wake.
Since his diagnosis, he has been actively involved in many activities and organizations (Augie’s Quest, I AM ALS, Team Gleason, ALS TDI) to raise awareness and make a difference in the fight to end ALS. He has appeared on several podcasts to talk about ALS, including the GoHuskies Podcast for the University of Washington (where he was a member of the 1991 National Championship team), and the Break It Down Show . His story was also featured in the GoHuskies Magazine which is distributed to UW Athletics season ticket holders. He is also partnering with UW Medicine to increase awareness and fundraise for the growing ALS research at his alma mater at the Center for Translational Muscle Research and the Institute for Stem Cell & Regenerative Medicine.
