Did you ever stop to think about how water can move? Or think about how people can move as well? I’m not talking about specific actions, but just the basic ability. But there’s a caveat that many people forget: those with ALS lose the natural ability to move as their motor neurons die and their muscles cease functioning.
When the ALS Therapy Development Institute invited me to speak at their annual White Coat Affair gala last October, I took advantage of the opportunity to tour the Institute’s lab where they are performing fast-track ALS research. While there, our tour passed by the freezer where AT-1501, a potential effective treatment for both ALS and Alzheimer’s, is stored.
I'm thankful for those who support my fundraising efforts for ALS research and for the staff at the ALS Therapy Development Institute.
