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.

Lou Gehrig's Disease Should Not Mean Lou Gehrig's Prognosis!

Try this little experiment. Go to ebay and search for "1939 medical." That stuff looks archaic, doesn't it?
A patient who is diagnosed with ALS today has the same prognosis that Lou Gehrig had in 1939. The death sentence that accompanies ALS should also be archaic in today's world. It's outrageous that it's not.
