Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), Toronto, ON
APRIL 11, 2017
ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, is a disease that gradually paralyzes people because the brain is no longer able to communicate with the muscles of the body that we are typically able to move at will. Over time, as the muscles of the body weaken, a person with ALS will lose the ability for daily activities. There are no effective treatments for ALS and no cure. Approximately 80 percent of people with ALS die within two to five years of being diagnosed.
