    I remember the community that built up around my dad and mom when they were facing this. It made all the difference in the world. It was overwhelming and sometimes almost embarrassing to be the recipients of so much care and attention but it mostly made me understand how deeply we are all connected and how good peoples hearts really are. Thanks for sharing this story.

    did this dude ever get tested for lyme disease?

  6. AllAcesMedia Says:

    He got tested for everything. He has a genetic form of ALS which his mother and grandmother died from.

  7. daniel987878 Says:

    he was one tough person to go through all this.

  8. daniel987878 Says:

    I read that many cases of ALS are just Lyme disease. Lyme disease is very hard to diagnose with most standard tests providing false negatives. Antibiotics reverse many peoples ALS apparently.

  9. Pandora Souza Says:

    LOL That is the biggest load of crap I have ever heard. You must know NOTHING about ALS or Lymes disease.

    This series is amazing, it helps appreciate every second I have with my aunt, who was diagnosed very late with ALS. Thank You for telling your story.

    My name is Helen Barratt and my mother died of MND or Lou Gehrig’s ALS in 2009. My latest forum article called ‘Australian Researchers Discover Potential Blue Green Algae Cause & Treatment of Motor Neuron Disease (MND)&(ALS)’ and its link to Parkinsons’s and Alzheimer’s diseases can be found at Science20 under the medicine forum.
