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.

We Hope Scott Pelley Remembers Steve and ALS

If you saw the 60 Minutes piece on the 21st Century Snake Oil , then you saw Steve Watters. He was an ALS patient who went undercover with Scott Pelley to expose the con man with a bogus stem cell cure for a price. Steve was always a thoughtful contributor on ALS message boards, and he turned out to be a huge contributor to the awareness of ALS in his role on that 60 Minutes segment.

Steve Watters has died.

Another nice person. Another achiever. Another contributor. Another funeral.
