Hi, I'm a new member from Tennessee. My 34 year old son was diagnosed with ALS almost two years ago. He has a beautiful wife and two young children. I help provide care for my son and his family as often as they need me. It's difficult as a mom to watch my son progress but I'm trying to be strong. I love spending time with him and his family and find I am happiest when I am with him/them. It is when I'm not with him that I have a difficult time. My husband and two daughters are very supportive but would love to find some other parents that are going through this with an adult child.

Very sorry to hear about your son, Kato. There are other parents here with an adult PALS and I am sure some will chime in. Your son and his family are lucky that you are able to spend time with them.

Best,
Laurie
