Lou Gehrig's Disease - Motor Neuron Disease - Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis
Thought it had been cured by now? Still no known cause. Still no cure. Still quickly fatal. Still outrageous.

Thank You, Tony Proudfoot

When an athlete is cut down by ALS, it is especially cruel. When a broadcaster is cut down by ALS, it is especially cruel. Tony Proudfoot got the double-whammy, yet he decided to use his voice to tell the world about this outrageous disease.

We have lost another powerful advocate.

And the questions persist about athletes and ALS...
It did not take Lou Gehrig’s disease—and the torturous symmetry that his roommate from his Alouette playing days Larry Uteck had also died of it—to demonstrate Tony’s courage and dedication. That was in the bank long ago.
