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.

#Empowering People With ALS

Mom died from ALS in 1997.

When we were losing her, she still had a strong grip, but her dexterity to work buttons or a light switch was completely gone.

Enter The Clapper.

I'll never forget watching her the first time she clapped on and the lights came on.  Clap on, clap off.  It was a huge victory.

Today we'll see how far technology has come for people with ALS when Microsoft shows Steve Gleason using Microsoft Surface during the Super Bowl.  This is another huge victory.

People with ALS deserve these victories.  They deserve a treatment, too, but in the meantime, thanks to all who are #empowering them!
