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.

How About A Commemorative Box Of Wheaties?

Wouldn't it be nice if General Mills might make a commemorative Lou Gehrig Wheaties box to celebrate Wheaties' birthday and to raise more 4 ALS awareness?

The following is from this morning's Wall Street Journal:

Remembering Gehrig With A Splash Of Milk
Wheaties, the cereal that calls itself the breakfast of champions, is celebrating its 85th birthday. Lou Gehrig was the first athlete to grace a Wheaties box, appearing on the back of the carton in 1934. Since then more than 150 individual athletes have been pictured on the box, and 50 teams have been featured. Michael Jordan was the first basketball player to get the honor in 1988, and he’s also the most frequent guest, appearing 18 times. Tiger Woods is on his heels at 16.
