Default O J Brigance

Has anyone gone to the Brigance Brigade? This wonderful young man was diagnosed with ALS two years ago and he has a truly remarkable attitude & lots of courage. He is a former Baltimore Ravens player. It is worth going to his Facebook page to see what he's doing for ALS and trying to raise money for research on finding a cure.

Yes, he is certainly a good role model. He is also an accomplished player development ccordinator, having won some awards in this field. I checked the wikipedia link to the Baltimore Ravens site and found one of the writers refer to ALS as a hereditary disease. This only goes to show how little is know about ALS by the public at large.
