Despite All The Odds, A Father With ALS Walks His Daughter Down the Aisle.

Lindsay Nieto’s father was diagnosed with ALS (also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease) when she was just 15-years-old, so she quietly made peace with the fact that he would never be able to walk her down the aisle at her wedding.

Ten years later, 56-year-old Augie Nieto, was by his daughter’s side every step of the way when she married Chris Williams in Rancho Palos Verdes, California. Defying the average prognosis of two to five years of survival for those with ALS, Augie helped escort Lindsay up the grassy incline to the altar while harnessed to an aluminum scaffolding that helped keep him upright for the emotional ceremony.

After getting diagnosed with ALS, Augie created a foundation called Augie’s Quest, which has raised nearly $40 million since 2006 to help find a cure for ALS.
