ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, affects 30,000 Americans. It is a disease that attacks nerve cells and ultimately leads to paralysis. Prior to the ice bucket challenge, many Americans were not aware of this crippling disease, or of its effects on patients. The typical life expectancy is three to five years. That’s why the Ice Bucket Challenge is so important. For more information, visit www.alsa.org.
