JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Within the past two weeks, it seems like everyone you know has taken the ice bucket challenge to raise awareness about ALS.

SouthernCare Hospice in Clinton had a special reason to take the challenge.

They did it in the name of one of their patients who suffers from ALS.

Julie Drenin was on hand to witness this event done in her honor.

While she is unable to speak, the staff who takes care of her, was happy to share their feelings about this special day.

Brad Brister, a hospice nurse, said "I'm just happy that we can come together in this office not just us but everybody around the country I just know soon or later with God leading people in their life, they'll find a cure one day."

The SouthernCare staff says 44-year-old Drenin was diagnosed with ALS 8 years ago and she is currently in her last phase of it.

Their ice bucket challenge will raise money for the awareness walk scheduled for September 27th.
