As a Cleveland Personal Injury lawyer, I have represented people made victims by no fault of their own.
The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has been a great first step in boosting awareness for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, also known as ALS or Lou Gherig’s Disease. This challenge is so important because it puts ALS at the forefront to facilitate awareness. That is why I participated in the Ice Bucket Challenge!
Lou Gherig’s Disease is a neuro degenerative disease affecting the nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord. The results of this are devastating, and no known cures have been found. However, scientific research has opened up our knowledge to the disease over the past several years. Opportunities such as the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge are increasing awareness and raising money towards the ALS Association and its research!
We all have loved ones, friends, or co-workers who have been affected by Lou Gherig’s. Almost 30,000 Americans may have the disease at any given time—in retrospect, the disease occurs in 2 per every 100,000 people.
The more money raised, the more we can accelerate research to eradicate this! Whether you know someone suffering from ALS, I challenge you to take on the Ice Bucket Challenge. Check out the link to see who I challenge!
