Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), often referred to as “Lou Gehrig’s Disease,” is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord.

At the onset of ALS the symptoms may be so slight that they are frequently overlooked. With regard to the appearance of symptoms and the progression of the illness, the course of the disease may include the following:

  • muscle weakness in one or more of the following: hands, arms, legs or the muscles of speech, swallowing or breathing
  • twitching (fasciculation) and cramping of muscles, especially those in the hands and feet
  • impairment of the use of the arms and legs
  • in more advanced stages, shortness of breath, difficulty in breathing and swallowingTHE CHALLENGE IS ON…Publisher Sal Conforto, the newly inductee into the Veteran’s Hall of Fame to the Ice Bucket Challenge.In Return…Eliu Feliciano, the CEO of EF Sports Inc., a trendsetter and man on the move who is elevating futures through example and inspiring community and youth through sports to the Ice Bucket Challenge.In Return…NYC Council Member Andy King who is serving the people of the Bronx via community involvements and projects while using each path as a runway to new opportunities with his stylish dress codes to the Ice Bucket Challenge.Khirlu Burton, Media Specialist who is never shy to think outside the box and always perfecting skills to the Ice Bucket Challenge.Eliu Feliciano has CHALLENGED:Aaron Green, Founder of HBO Bulldogs and Coach that is helping the youth stay out of trouble through sports and activities to the Ice Bucket Challenge.CM Andy King has CHALLENGED… Khirlu Burton has CHALLENGED…Joel Ortiz has CHALLENGED…
