You’ve probably heard of it by now, the Ice Bucket Challenge. 

Those challenged are supposed either to dump an ice bucket

of cold water over their head, or donate to ALS research.  One

of the famous victims of this disease is Stephen Hawking.


But what it is ALS?

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)— also known as Lou

Gehrig's disease—is a neurodegenerative disease with

various  causes,  characterised by  muscle spasticity,

rapidly  progressive weakness,and difficulty  in

speaking, swallowing, and breathing. ALS is the most

common ofthe five motor neuron diseases.


So, raising  awareness about  ALS and  increasing

support for  ALS research  is a good thing.  Your

gift  will  help on  the research to  find a cure  for ALS

 andprovide services to patients and their families.
