AN ALS DIAGNOSIS IS A DEATH SENTENCE! THE LENGTH OF THAT SENTENCE DEPENDS ON WHICH PART OF THE BODY IT TAKES FIRST.
An ALS Patient can not go through a horrendous treatment and come out a survivor. There is no treatment. There are no survivors. Every 90 minutes, someone is diagnosed with ALS! The victims are randomly selected , usually somewhere between the ages of 30-60. Every 90 minutes...someone loses the hard fought battle and dies from ALS.
When people ask how Bryan is doing, we say he is doing well. He is still alive, he can still breath unassisted, and can still eat by mouth with our help ( he has no use of his arms and hands) He has one of the slowest progressing forms of this evil disease, the Drs have seen. But he is still dying. We watch him lose abilities slowly. But we are all very aware of his future.
As a Mom and a woman who has watched so many people in our area die a horrible long death from this disease, I ask you to donate any Researchers say that a treatment is on the horizon. They are making great advances. I feel it is my duty to advocate for all of them for as long as I can. I would be honored if you would join our fight.
