ALS is a fatal disease with no survivors; there is no known cause, viable treatment, or cure for ALS. With that, the life expectancy is only 2-5 years after diagnosis. Military veterans, regardless of branch of service or era in which they served, are twice as likely to be diagnosed with ALS. Currently, the connection is unknown. People with ALS are robbed of the ability to walk, eat, speak, and eventually breathe.
ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease) progressively paralyzes its victims, attacking nerve cells and pathways in the brain or spinal cord. People with ALS are robbed of the ability to walk, eat, speak, and eventually breathe. Military veterans, regardless of branch of service, era in which they served, or peace or wartime service, are twice as likely to be diagnosed with ALS. Currently, the connection is unknown. It is always fatal, and life expectancy is only 2-5 years after diagnosis.
Help us battle this terrible disease by supporting your favorite band at your favorite venue!
