For many of us, Smash My Trash is like a family. As we have grown and built an all-new business, we have also developed strong relationships with all our partners. On January 4th we lost Derek Wood, a member of the Smash My Trash family, to ALS. Derek his wife Tammy and their sons, Kenneth & Jace have been building and growing the Smash My Trash brand in Dallas.
Throughout Derek’s journey with ALS, he and his wife, Tammy, felt a calling to help others touched by and living with the disease. Derek’s vibrant passion for life will continue to live on through The Derek Wood ALS Innovation Fund. “We set up this foundation to help Dr. Eva Feldman and the good work that she is doing at Michigan Medicine.”
We encourage everyone to read about Derek’s story, and the wonderful legacy he has left to help fund research toward finding a cure for this terrible disease. Click here: https://www.umich-als.org/wood-family-bonds-together-in-als-battle/
