    I was diagnosed with ALS two months ago, may 2017. I´ve read about “MASITINIB” produced by Pasteur Lab. in France.
    “EDARAVONE” authorized in Japan since 2015 and F.D.A. in the USA since may 2017 but there´s no information in my country.

    How can I get more information and when these medications would be available in the market?

    My name is June. My best friend since 1974 was diagnosed two years ago. This is a disease from hell. I’ve been with her the whole way. She is awaiting word on the Radicava. We are praying it will be soon. Could you please send her a personal word of encouragement. She’s by herself and not close to family. She’s aphasic and can only text. If you are able please notify me and I will let you have her email address God bless you. If not please keep her in your prayers.

    My boyfriend has PLS. Most scientific research is for ALS but Kris holds on to hope. Kris is in a wheelchair mostly. He refuses to put himself in a motorized wheelchair that would give him more energy. He still works a full-time job and raising 3 teenagers. I hope they find a cure. Every day when I watch his struggles, I have nothing to complain about. Any feedback for help for him would be greatly appreciated. This story really is inspirational. Kris is an inspiration to me. Thanks to all those that really go up and beyond to help people with ALS, PLS, and andy muscular disease. God bless.
