The Month of May is ALS Awareness Month http://www.whathealth.com/awareness/event/alsawarenessmonth.html
In the plethora of awareness months it is easy to lose track of what to be aware of until the disease strikes someone you know. Then you want everyone to be aware.
ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) is also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease. As yet there is no cure or understanding as to the causes of this devastating condition.
ALS can strike out of the blue and is “indiscriminate in the types of people who will be affected by it.”
It is my fervent hope you or someone you know never encounters ALS, but if that misfortune befalls you or yours here are some sites that will support you through this difficult disease.
