Every 90 minutes in the US someone is diagnosed with ALS and every 90 minutes someone dies from ALS/MND.
The only answer to defeating ALS is research. It is the only way we'll find a treatment and hopefully a cure.
This website was born out of love and loss.
For me it started with the devastating experience of watching a loved one from the start to the end of her struggle with this incredibly cruel disease.
First, the shocking diagnosis....then the days and nights of watching her suffer. Watching the loss of the use of her hands.... then her legs, resulting in multiple falls and injuries.... then the lose of her speech and her difficulty swallowing... until she no longer could speak or eat.
Finally, watching her die, as her breath became labored to the point where she could no longer breathe.
We must support crucial research needed to put a stop to this dreadful disease that strikes people of all ages, male or female, young and old.
