Welcome to my blog. I have had ALS for 10 years now.

Since I started this blog in June 2008 I've had amazing feedback. Family, friends, people from all over North America, Australia, Scotland, England, and places I can't recall, have commented, encouraged and corresponded. I had no idea when Cynthia taught me how to set this up, how much I would love posting and how many people would read it. I want to say THANK YOU to everyone who has helped propel this therapeutic exercise into a daily routine. All of you, both friends and visitors, are now part of my blog family. Welcome.

Trial underway to test treatment of ALS using human stem cells
30,000 Americans have ALS or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease. It's a fatal neurodegenerative disease that takes away the ability to walk, talk and eventually even breathe. That quick decline happens within two to five years. There is no known cure. Now, a revolutionary trial is underway to test a new kind of treatment for ALS using human stem cells.
