Tip of the Week

ALS is a fatal disease. According to medical resources, anyone diagnosed with ALS will live an average of two to five years after being diagnosed. Ten percent of initially diagnosed will live for ten years after this diagnosis. Since ALS is a motor neuron disease affecting the skeletal muscles, ALS patients will suffer from respiratory failure when their respiratory muscles stop functioning. A respirator can be used for breathing when respiratory failure occurs.
