Moncton Firefighters were gathered around a Man that was a Firefighter in the Hubcity for many years, but now he's not fighting fires, but is fighting for his life, he has Lou Gehrig's disease. People in teams were at Bore Park for a walk this afternoon at 2 P.M. They walked along the trail to the bridge at the Chateau Moncton and back , making it a 1 km walk. ALS, sometimes called Lou Gehrig's disease or motor neuron disease, is a rapidly progressive fatal neuromuscular disease. It is characterized by degeneration of a select group of nerve cells and pathways in the brain and spinal cord, which lead to progressive paralysis of the muscles.
ALS can strike anyone. It can hit at any time, regardless of age, sex, or ethnic origin.
In at least 90 per cent of cases, it strikes people with no family history of the disease.
There is no treatment that prolongs life significantly.
There is no cure for ALS -- yet.http://www.radioreference.com/apps/audio/?ctid=4366
