I do not have ALS, but am a member of the Daily Strength community. I have both Polymyositis and Lupus. However, I heard a report on ALS yesterday and thought I would share it with you, in case it might help someone here.

This link includes a video interviewing a man with ALS, as well as the doctor who developed this and his daughter (Deanna). My prayer is that it might be a help to someone.
