Thu 4-23-2020

(Spencer)-- A Spencer woman battling a rare form of ALS, or Lou Gehrig's Disease, is now in hospice care.

The family of Jaci Hermstad made the announcement earlier this week, saying her time to begin a new journey and feel the embrace of her sister, who succumbed to ALS, is here.

The family's statement says “Jaci, a true warrior in her battle against ALS, gave all. She has faced her diagnosis with a sense of resolve and determination and faith—knowing all too well her path to a cure was virtually impossible...Jaci felt a sense of duty to honor her sister Alex and all those suffering from ALS by battling the disease head-on...”

The family asks residents to pray for Jaci every night at 8:00 pm and for her family to find a way to mend their broken hearts.
