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.

Take Nothing For Granted

We without ALS take so much for granted. We grab a quick breakfast and get dressed quickly and jump in the car to go to work. We talk on our cell phones and tap on our keyboards. We make vacation plans months in advance.

With ALS you take nothing for granted. Every day steals some ability that you'll never get back. The disease runs an often fast course and you don't put off plans because you don't know what challenge tomorrow will bring.

The MDA runs a series of patient vignettes for ALS Awareness Month.

Take a look at the May 1 honoree. He didn't make it to May 1. ALS stole him on ALS's own wicked schedule. That's ALS. Mr. Wright teaches us about ALS in a way that he could never have planned for ALS Awareness Month.

ALS -- The take-nothing-for-granted disease.
