Hi my name is Shelly. My mom was diagnosed with ALS in Sept 03'. She has had symptoms longer than that, almost two years. It is certainly a scary disease. I've been looking for information and found this site. Just wanted to say hello.
Hi Shelly, I'm sorry to hear about your Mom, it is a horrible disease. There is a great deal of support for you on this site. The people are just amazing. My sister and I are very close and have been through a great many things over the years, but we have never faced an opponent like this. We are very fortunate because we have a close family, and as time goes on it will be even more important as Sis needs more help. Be strong, call on family and friends for support. The people on this site are also here for you.
Thinking of you Jane
