I love the attention ALS is now getting because of this challenge!  Period.  I lost my Mom to pancreatic cancer in 2010.  I worked tirelessly until last September for PC awareness.  I stopped volunteering with because my husband was diagnosed with a horribly devastating diagnosis - Angioimmunoblastic T-Cell Non Hodgkins Lymphoma.  Both of those are cancer.

I have a friend who lost her brother to ALS.  Though not cancer, it is a horrific diagnosis.  I am thrilled that it is getting so much well-deserved attention.   I'm a firm believer in paying it forward.  I wish you well in your challenge!!
