Hi everyone, I am a new member. My husband was diagnosed with ALS March 2000 at age 45. We have two daughters 18 and 20. Would like to hear from other caregivers for support etc. We live in a small community of 1000 people. My husband is the first ever ALS patient in this area. No support group, we are sort of in this alone, what we know about ALS we learned quickly on our own. It's been quite a ride and we are helping each other throught this with the help of God and our family.
