What is ALS?
ALS Is an always fatal neurodegenerative disease in which a person's brain loses connection with the muscles. People with ALS lose their ability to walk, talk, eat and eventually breathe.
ALS usually strikes people between the ages of 40 and 70, but it can strike anyone at any time. Although there is not yet a cure or treatment that halts ALS, scientists have made significant progress in understanding what causes ALS. But, their work is not done.
There is NO CURE for ALS but there is Hope 4 Tomorrow!
I cannot do what I used to do - some of my limbs do not work well. Instead I focus on what I can do - shine the light in a dark place, bringing joy and hope to those living with ALS. Deborah J. Winters
