Started: June 21, 2007 We Can Put a Man on the Moon, but we can't find a CURE for ALS Please help "CURE" ALS "Lou Gehrig's Disease Please Read About ALS and how it could affect you, someome in your family or a friend or someone you know! This mystery of a disease that affects as many as 30,000 annually. With more than 5,600 people diagnosed each year - an average of 15 new cases each day - our mission is urgent. The search for answers knows no bounds. ALS has no Prejudice - It occurs worldwide, with No Age, Ethnic or Economic boundaries. ALS is a degenerative disease; it deteriorates the motor neurons in the brain and spinal cords. Motor neurons are the little messengers sent out by the nervous system to tell the muscles to move. ALS attacks these motor neurons, causing the victim to lose control of his muscles. Every year in America 1-2 people per 100,000 develop ALS; that figures out to about 5,000 new victims per year. Once a person has been diagnosed with ALS, they usually are given a life expectancy of 3-6 years. The disease can strike anyone at any age, but it most often it strikes in the middle-aged and elderly, more commonly in men. Although women do get it. It's a rare disease, the truth be told; the rareness can be both fascinating and frustrating to victims and their doctors. For instance, victim'cognitive and imaginative brain function is left intact. Though the victim eventually cannot talk or move, they can still think, remember, hear, compute and daydream - and they are very aware of how trapped in their own bodies. Eventually resulting in death. Therefore depression is a common side effect of ALS. Please help my Brother Timothy and all other ALS Patients and those that will be diagnosed in the future. When Diagnosed with ALS a persons Life will never be like it was before, unless we find a cure. Please sign my petition to "CURE" ALS I have selected Country on sign petition, because I want to help every one with ALS every where. I sincerely thank you on behalf of all ALS Patients.
