Why is it so hard to cure ALS?

May 10, 2019 by

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) affects about two out of every 100,000 people worldwide. ALS is a complex disease that doctors and scientists have no cure for as this disease often shows up suddenly. When a person has ALS, their motor neurons lose function and die. Motor neurons are responsible for all voluntary muscle control in the body, and when these neurons die, the signals from the brain to make the muscle move become disrupted. This disease is also called motor neuron disease and Lou Gehrig’s Disease.

Learn more about ALS in the video below and share it with a friend as May is ALS Awareness Month for USA and June is ALS Awareness Month for Canada. If you’d like to donate to ALS research, look online for a local organization near you.
