Eric Fought ALS with Dignity and Strength

Joyce T. Point Pleasant, New Jersey

My husband, Eric and I dated for eight years and married three years ago - July 24, 2011. It was a second marriage for both of us. We were married one year when Eric started having difficulty swallowing and speaking. After many doctor appointments and tests, as there is no test for ALS, everything else has to be eliminated first, he was diagnosed with ALS on December 14, 2012. Eric fought the disease with dignity and strength. He passed away peacefully at age 62, on December 13, 2013. I hope and pray for a cure so that others do not have to go through what my husband and I did.
