ALS, also called Lou Gehrig's Disease, is a progressive, fatal neurological disease. ALS manifests in many different ways including tripping and falling, loss of motor control in hands and arms, difficulty speaking, swallowing, or breathing, persistent fatigue, and twitching and cramping. In the later stages, patients are often bed-ridden, surviving with the aid of respirators and feeding tubes, and requiring 24-hour care. Obviously, when a family member is stricken with ALS, their life and the lives of their caregivers are overwhelmed with difficulties. The ALS Iron Horse Foundation was formed to provide relief.
