What is ALS?

So, what is ALS Disease?  ALS means Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.  In plain terms it’s a disease that affects your nerve cell and moves through your body attacking all of your muscles.  My mom told me, by typing into her iPad because she could no longer talk, that the worst part was her brain was fine.  In her mind she felt fine.  She could think clearly, just couldn’t respond to anything.  Her mind was good, but her body was in pain and it just wouldn’t cooperate with her brain.  Although some ALS patients do have cognitive decline. 

What causes ALS?  ALS symptoms are always with some loss of motor skills.  Whether it be tingling in your hands and feet, or slurred speech.  Then the disease just keeps moving through your body like a wildfire spreading through a dry forest.  

Unfortunately Doctors and Scientists don’t know what causes ALS, although according to “ALS is inherited by 5% to 10% of people. For the rest, the cause isn’t known.

ALS is also referred to as Lou Gehrig’s Disease. Probably the most notable person who has had ALS was Stephen Hawking. If you don’t know who he is you can google him and the pictures will tell you all you need to know. 

The ALS life expectancy of someone diagnosed is 3 years.  My mom was healthy, then she started noticing some changes. A little over 2 years later she was gone.  This disease can and usually does work at a rapid pace.  The average age of people who get ALS are between 40 and 70, but it can happen to people in their 20’s and 30’s.  Scary thought.

Ice Bucket Challenge - The Ice Bucket Challenge in 2014 pumped a ton of money into funding research for ALS.  $115,000,000 was donated to the ALS Association. The ALS Association was able to increase their overall worldwide budget by 187% to fight this terrible disease.  237 grants were awarded to doctors and scientists to increase the research for treating and finding a cure for ALS.

The Ice Bucket Challenge helped speed up research needed to find treatments and a cure.  In 2019 Calaneet Balas, president and CEO of The ALS Association, said “Five years after the Ice Bucket Challenge soaked the world, the pace of discovery has increased tremendously, bringing ALS researchers closer than they have ever been to real breakthroughs in diagnosing, treating, and eventually curing this disease”, courtesy of

Because of donations and movements like the Ice Bucket Challenge each day research gets closer to a cure for ALS. is an avenue to help in the fight against ALS.  It took my mom, and it takes many other’s loved ones, and is my way of fighting back against ALS.
