ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

11:51 PM

I was nominated by Adrian Stevenson to do this #ALSIceBucketChallenge.

To be honest at first i was pretty reluctant because I am very afraid of cold! Secondly I wasn't feeling well... furthermore I was given only 24 hours to do this. But... I decided to do it because it's for charity and would like to do my part in creating awareness.

ALS stands for Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis which is also referred to as motor neurone disease (MND), Charcot disease, and, in the United States, Lou Gehrig's disease. ALS is a neurodegenerative disease with various causes. It is characterised by muscle spasticity, rapidly progressive weakness due to muscle atrophy, difficulty in speaking (dysarthria), swallowing (dysphagia), and breathing (dyspnea). ALS is the most common of the five motor neuron diseases. (2014, Wikipedia)

The ALS diseases is even scary to think about... one who is diagnosed with ALS would experience mild weakness in their body: arms, hands. legs, etc... and slowly... eventually the whole body would not be able to function. Diagnosed patients would bed ridden, unable to eat naturally... basically it is a very very sad disease and very expensive.

Please do your part and make a donation of any amount you want at www.als.org.
