ALS Explained
So I’m sure you’ve all seen the ‘Ice Bucket Challenges’ which have been posted everywhere online! And it’s so great that it’s become so widespread! But I think it’s also important to remember the reason behind it; to spread awareness about ALS, so educate yourselves!
To summarise the video, ALS (also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease or Motor Neurone Disease) is a progressive disease which stops your motor neurons from working, these neurons control your muscles. The result is progressive loss of voluntary movement, starting with tremors and eventually leading to total loss of mobility, and eventual loss of speech; many sufferers use a computer to communicate. Basic functions like chewing, swallowing, and breathing are affected. Many are fed through a tube, and most will die from a respiratory related illness. It does not effect thought or understanding (although around 10% of cases involve a form of dementia) and sufferers are completely aware of what is happening.
You can click here to watch a video about a really awesome teacher with very advanced MND.
Currently very little is known about the cause, and there is little treatment, and we are still very far from a cure. The disease is always terminal. That’s why there’s such a push for awareness and fundraising!
So if you’re doing the ice-bucket challenge then great! But make sure you use it to raise awareness, and use it as a reason to learn more about the disease yourself! Don’t forget to make a donation (if you can afford it) ¬†to aid research and treatment. Here’s the ALS Association for America, and the Motor Neurone Disease Association for the UK, or simply donate to your favourite charity because that’s how the charity originated!

Aw thanks!

  1. I have become a lot more confident recently
  2. I am a caring person
  3. I am sociable and am learning that I can make friends easily if I just act like myself
  4. I work hard and commit myself to things
  5. I am ambitious 

The woman I was talking to at volunteering today said that when I walked in she thought I was a writer which is supa cute and made me happy
