Someone I love needs a cure. The ALS Challenge.

Am thrilled about the ice bucket fever that’s sweeping the nation…and world (Lindsay Lohan just challenged Prince Harry).

ALS, also known as  Lou Gehrig’s Disease, is challenging my wife’s sister and her loved ones on a daily basis. I’m so glad that the disease is getting the attention it deserves since we desperately need research to find a cure for this generally fatal disease that strikes randomly and seems to have no rhyme or reason.

 I’m also proud of all of our relatives who’re risen to the occasion in so many ways. Several have raised $1000s via the Walk  to Defeat ALS, sponsored by the ALS Association . Over 70,000 walkers have signed up to walk during the month of October this year, and $13 million has been donated or pledged so far.
