Damn it. Why does it seem like the good guys (Steve Gleason, et. al) are disproportionately attacked by Lou Gehrig's disease? I suppose that we simply don't hear about those non-iconic sufferers who lack good PR and a solid support system - but at any rate, it totally sucks.

 

In this instance, what doesn't suck is Eddie D's unwavering support. (check out the URL )

Agreed. Gleason made one of the most iconic plays in Saints history. New Orleans history. He's a trooper. All of those that were diagnosed need and deserve the same. The ice bucket challenge has been forgotten. Sad.

All my flavors are guranteed to satisfy.

Wow, I had no idea that ALS was this prevalent.

Just saw where Gale Sayers family says he has dementia.  

 

 

 

 

Gale, however, says   "whu"?
