Let's Stop ALS

Janina D. St. Louis Park, Minnesota

It all started when I couldn't put on a bra. Someone had to help with it. Then, I usually walk with my mom. She couldn't understand that I was walking shorter distances, with labored breathing. I noticed my right arm and right leg were weaker. Then, my sister sent me over to see my neurologist. After testing, she proclaimed I had ALS. That was March 2012. Now, I can only communicate with my iPad. I cruise the halls at my Nursing Home in my purple electric wheelchair. Also, I am tube-fed, my right arm is useless, and I have to use mask for breathing at night. Please, I don't want anybody suffering from this terrible ALS!!!
