Lisa Lally: Devoted Singer, Wife, and Mother

Lisa, a devoted singer, wife, and mother, uses her singing opportunities in Nashville and around the country to enlighten people about a rare heredity degenerative neuromuscular disease known as Friedrich's Ataxia (FA) that has afflicted her youngest son, Jude.

Although born with it, Jude wasn't diagnosed until the tender age of 16. It was quite a blow to a young man who had played nearly every sport coming and going while growing up.

Fighting the disease for a long time, Jude finally succumbed to a wheelchair a few years ago. At the age of 27, Jude continues to hang in there the best he can.

A graduate in 2006 with a BA in Business Administration from the University of Kentucky, Jude's physical disabilities have prevented him from holding down a job. With his limited ability to type, Jude has become quite a writer and poet in the past couple of years.

Lisa started a "Hey Jude" group in honor of her son and to connect with other people who are either afflicted with FA or who are caretakers for those who are.

Additionally, Lisa wrote and recorded a song called "Jude" that is available for you to listen to on her music site.

Lisa also has posted her songs on Facebook.
