Collage: ALS Association Orange County Chapter

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, also known as ALS is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord.

People with ALS slowly become incapacitated when the pathway from the brain to the muscles die. And then they eventually die.

Please join KSBR News Director Dawn Kamber as she welcomes ALS Association Orange County Chapter Project Support Coordinator Kristin Schlick and Person with ALS, known as PALS Eryn Blythe and her husband Chad.
