Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), also referred to as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, is a fatal  neurodegenerative disorder that affects the person’s motor neurons that carry messages to the muscles, resulting in weakness and wasting in arms, legs, mouth, throat and elsewhere. Typically the person is immobilized or deceased within two to five years of the initial diagnosis.  ALS can happen to anyone at anytime.
