I’m sure by now most of you have seen the many, many (….many, many, many) ice bucket challenge videos circulating around the internet. It is good fun for a great cause. This challenge promotes awareness and to date has raised a whopping 88.5 million dollars for the ALS Association to help combat Lou Gehrig Disease.
It is estimated that as many as 30,000 Americans are fighting this disease right now and its one that is close to my heart. In 1994 my grandfather was diagnosed with a form of ALS. It took away his ability to walk, strained his breathing and eventually took his life.
