    Many of our ventilator-dependent patients attend school. With a little extra planning and preparation, education at all levels is possible. With September right around the corner children are trading in their bathing suits and summer camp for backpacks and homework.

    Strike out ALS: The Ice Bucket Challenge

    Last updated 29 days ago

    We still don’t know what causes this devastating disease. That’s a problem—and it’s people who are battling ALS, like Pete Frates (age 29), who are changing that one ice cube at a time. Check out Pete’s website to learn more about his story and campaign to “Strike out ALS.”

    I was nominated earlier this week, and proudly accepted the challenge. Watch my video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dvT-jnG25jQ

    (Stacey, Deb, and Vicki… we’re still waiting on you to complete the challenge!)

    If you don’t know much about ALS, I hope the Ice Bucket Challenge encourages you to learn more or donate to the cause. Read More →
