We do end up in this together don't we - coming from all corners. I have not really seen many posts from other European countries, mostly UK. Are there places in the world free from ALS?
I'm not ready either to face this ALS thing (who would be?). I'm in Canada - I note many UK, Serbia and Aussies & New Zealanders are posting too.
If you find a country with absolutely no ALS - I'll be happy to go there and drink the water! I also checked PK - but being new, to ALS and this forum, I lacked the courage to tell you I think PK is suspect at best.
I hope your sister and you will find an ALS Clinic you like and which is close to home. You sound like a great sister - my two sisters are amazing too. I could not have gotten through the initial shock period without either of them.
God bless sisters!
