ALS Awareness Month

I hope this is ok to post here.

May is ALS awareness month and I just wanted to share a few facts with you in an effort to raise awareness! Obviously :laughing:







I’ve talked about a lot my experiences with this disease and I appreciate all the love and support you’re shown me, which means the world to me! :blue_heart::two_hearts::heart::purple_heart::people_hugging::kissing_heart:

“ALS affects the entire family”, this is important as a mother of a disabled son (ASD), I get this.

Reminds me of the disease that claimed my mom’s whole side. Most of them died of Huntington’s disease. Including my grandpa Jeff kadar. I never met but my mom said he would have never left my side. As I was a sports kid and he loved that. Wish I could have had him in my life. Lose control of motor functions. Eventually can’t breathe or swallow.
