The cause of ALS is still unknown and there is no cure.

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), often referred to as "Lou Gehrig's Disease," is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. 
Motor neurons reach from the brain to the spinal cord and from the spinal cord to the muscles throughout the body. The progressive degeneration of the motor neurons in ALS eventually leads to their death. When the motor neurons die, the ability of the brain to initiate and control muscle movement is lost. With voluntary muscle action progressively affected, patients in the later stages of the disease may become totally paralyzed. 


On April 29, 2010 my sister-in-law Helen was diagnosed with Lou Gehrig's Disease/A.L.S.
On December 12, 2013 Helen's life was taken away from us way 
too early.
