Family members of one Dawson County man are carrying on his legacy of supporting others impacted by the rare disease ALS. Dawson County resident Alisa Cain and her late husband, Joe Cain, were recently recognized with the Muscular Dystrophy Association’s “Steve Ennis Award” during the nonprofit’s 16th annual “Night of Hope Gala,” held March 25 at Atlanta’s InterContinental Buckhead Hotel. ALS, also known as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis or Lou Gehrig’s disease, is often fatal within two to five years of a person’s diagnosis.
