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.

It's Great To Preach To This Choir

See ALS Association's facebook wall with the activities kicking off the 2011 Advocacy Conference.

A large youth choir sang at the candlelight vigil.

One of these kids may be tomorrow's President to raise the public urgency of ALS... or tomorrow's Nobel-prize winner who finds the cure. None of these kids will forget ALS.


  1. I have a friend who has this illness. May I ask if an ALS person can reach mid 30s? Just curious.

  2. No two cases of ALS are alike. Many people only make it a couple of years after diagnosis. Some die more quickly than that while others can last for more than a decade. It's never a good diagnosis, but it varies greatly from patient to patient. We will be thinking of your friend.
