ALS Ice Bucket Challenge Testimonial – August 28, 2014 by Mike Sands:

I had my first symptoms of ALS 4 years ago this month.  Over the past 4 years, I have lost the ability to walk, talk, move most of my body, and swallow properly; in essence, every muscle in my body has stopped working or is on its way to that result.

It`s understandable for anyone in these circumstances to be in low spirits.  As I experience my body deteriorating on a daily basis, I look for things to raise my spirits, and the recent ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has done this.  The money raised is great, but what`s even more important is that the challenge is a sign that society is in our corner, ready to fight this disease with us arm in arm.

The ALS Society of British Columbia runs Patient Service Programs, to improve the quality of life while living with ALS.
