New Year, New Election
With 2020 quickly approaching and another election, I was wondering if ALS has impacted how you view politics. There has been a lot of focus on bringing tax breaks to pharmaceutical companies who are researching treatments for rare diseases. There has also been a lot of talk in the United States about making sure that these treatments are affordable to those who need them. So, has having ALS, or loving someone with ALS changed your perspective? Are you more likely to vote a certain way because of how a candidate supports or doesn’t support research for rare diseases? What are your thoughts? How do we, the ALS community, keep/make research for a cure a pressing issue?
