Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS or Lou Gehrig’s disease) remains a terrible disease for patients, as well as their families and so many others whose lives they touch. ALS is caused by an irreversible degeneration of motor neurons, which are the nerve cells in the spinal cord and brain that control the muscles needed for breathing, walking, and swallowing, among other daily activities. It is estimated that at any given time there are about 15,000 ALS patients in the United States.
