The ALS Association

Please Find a Cure

Laura C. Perry, Georgia

My dad has been completely confined to a bed for about eight years now and is also blind. I was told that he had restless leg syndrome and that all of this had been caused by diabetes. I have him at home now under hospice and just found out a few weeks ago that he has ALS. Talk about a bomb shell... I was not familiar with ALS until he was diagnosed, and I did some research on it. How could he go this long, and the doctors not know that this is what he had? I'm having a hard time with all of this, and all I want to do is help but my hands are tied! Please find a cure... My dad is only 51. It's not fair for anyone to have to go through this awful disease.
