What Is ALS?
First discovered in 1869, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, is a fatal progressive neurodegenerative disease. In 1939, Lou Gehrig brought the disease to the public’s attention just like the ice bucket challenge has today.
The disease attacks nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord. Eventually one becomes totally paralyzed losing the ability to breath, talk, eat and care for oneself. People with ALS have a life expectancy of 2-5 years.
