When did you first hear those dreadful three letters…A….L….S ?
For many pALS, the first time they heard of ALS was from their doctor while they were getting diagnosed with ALS. For me, I heard about it when I was 11, and my grandfather was diagnosed. I was young, admired my grandpa, and I was absolutely clueless how those three letters would impact my life.
When was the first time you heard of ALS. Was it when you were diagnosed? When you heard about the Ice Bucket Challenge? Did you know about Lou Gehrig disease? Did you know anyone else who had/have ALS? How much about ALS did you already know?
