Another reason why Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters is the best at everything he does. PERIOD.
Dave Grohl reminds us there is a REASON that pro-athletes, politicians, celebrities & musicians are dumping buckets of ice cold water on their heads…to raise money & awareness for a MONSTER of a disease.
Unfortunately, I know about this disease from a friend of mine who lost her husband to ALS a couple of years ago. The speed at which this neurological degenerative disease takes over your body makes the situation even more tragic. There is no known cause, and currently no cure. There isn’t a lot we can do right now other than make someone with ALS as comfortable as possible while their bodies shut down and help spread awareness and raise money.
Meet my 7-year old buddy Braedon.
His Grandpa Doug was diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease) about 5 years ago…life expectancy after diagnosis is between 3-5 years. Every year, Braedon walks with Team Iron Horse in the London ALS Walk which is coming up at Springbank Gardens September 27th. (You can donate to his team here http://bit.ly/1ppi7x3)
