This Is Leadership

“I believe that because ALS is under-funded and under-resourced many ALS patients end up fading away quietly and dying,” Gleason said. “For me, this was not okay. I did not want to fade away quietly. “

Thank heavens that Steve Gleason has the leadership abilities, the charisma, a great city, and a great team to bring ALS out of those out-of-sight, out-of-mind shadows. Super!
