ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

I wasn’t challenged, but I wanted to do this challenge and challenge my readers …

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), often referred to as “Lou Gehrig’s Disease,” is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Motor neurons reach from the brain to the spinal cord and from the spinal cord to the muscles throughout the body. The progressive degeneration of the motor neurons in ALS eventually leads to their death. When the motor neurons die, the ability of the brain to initiate and control muscle movement is lost. With voluntary muscle action progressively affected, patients in the later stages of the disease may become totally paralyzed.1

I did my ALS Challenge on August 21, 2014.

If you have watched my video above or read this post, you have 24 hours to do this challenge or donate to ALS any amount that you feel led to donate.

Go and share your videos!
