  1. ALS is a really terrifying disease. My dad was diagnosed with it a year ago and it’s hard watching him slowly waste away. I really hope that this disease continues to become known and that a cure or treatment is found. My prayers are out to any other people suffering from this terrible disease.

  2. The dutch campaign for awareness and money for research is the “best”, it shows someone with ALS who ask for help and ends with “it’s too late for me I am already dead” it shows new people who died from ALS each year.

  3. A year ago, my grandfather was diagnosed with ALS. In his current state, he can still move and speak, but he is incredibly weak, and he is on a wheelchair. Watching this video made me glad that I know more about this terrible condition.

  4. i like how they contradict themselves at the starting and end of the video regarding understanding the disease
