MORE ALS AWARENESS

You have heard of the band Five for Fighting.. well, they have this website http://www.whatkindofworlddoyouwant.com/ . You go there, watch some video's and they give money to charities.

One is for a hope type/als research charity. It was due to the diagnosis of Augie Nieto that all this came about. This guy is CEO of 24 Hour Fitness. It helps when "celebrities" or people of influence are diagnosed. It goes to show you that this fricking disease will and can effect anyone. It's not like your bad habits can cause the disease.

I hate that they lump it w/ the MDA.. You can have MS, MD and NOT die. ALS is such a death sentence. They are doing alot of research here in St Louis. A doctor here in St Louis, Jason Goldfeder was just diagnosed.

If you have time go look at some videos.

I'll check it out. I love Five for Fighting. Actually, I made a photo-video for my son's high school graduation party, and I used that song at the end while displaying his graduation pictures.

Makes me cry...
