What is ALS? - The ALS Association


The #ALSicebucketchallenge has been all the rage on the internet for the last couple of weeks. I haven't been nominated...fortunately, I guess. But I think the most important message about this challenge-gone-viral is starting to get lost - to understand what ALS is and contribute to help find a cure.

So I thought I'd look it up and find out more about ALS: What is ALS? - The ALS Association. Please do give it a read.

Most of us know at least one person with ALS - Stephen Hawking, who hasn't let ALS stop him from trying to uncover the secrets of the universe.

So whether you've got a bucket of ice-water or not, I'm sure you have a warm heart. Give what you can.
