Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), or “Lou Gehrig’s Disease”, is a degenerative disease which is estimated by the ALS Association to affect as many as 30,000 Americans at any given time. ALS causes the death of neurons that control voluntary muscles. This loss of muscle control leads to inability to walk, use the hands, speak, swallow, and eventually breathe.
