THE STORY:

Rob Sullivan is 40 years old with ALS. Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (abbreviated ALS, also referred to as Lou Gehrig's disease) is a form of motor neuron disease. ALS is a progressive, fatal, neurodegenerative disease caused by the degeneration of motor neurons, the nerve cells in the central nervous system that control voluntary mus...cle movement. Patients with ALS typically lose the ability to move and speak within 2 years of being diagnosed are bedbound and unable to do anyting for themselves.
Rob is losing the ability to speak making him in need of a commuincation device. Eye tracking is a very advanced technology to enable patients like Rob to use their eyes to create messages on a computer. The device costs around $18,000 and the insurance company will not pay for it. Please come help raise the money needed to let Rob communicate with his family, friends, and healthcare providers
