I have no idea how Stephen Hawkings has lived for so long but I can tell you that my mother lived for 16 years with ALS. Her neurologist told us this happens about 10% of the time. Once she was diagnosised she stayed the same for about 10 years and then began to rapidly fail. She also has a very negative attitude so it was not will that kept her going. There just seems to be no answer.
