If you don’t know what the ALS ice bucket challenge is, you’ve been walking around in a cloud for a couple of weeks. Now I’ve seen celebrities do the challenge and even a few fellow bloggers, but yesterday a Facebook friend of mine “Cathy”, called me out to do the challenge.
Yes, I know that there are haters out there and I’ve seen the posts going around about there being a better use for the water, but come on, let’s not cast a negative light on a fun and challenging way for alsa.org to help find a cure for ALS.
While I do not know first hand what it means to have ALS, I did have an old high school boyfriend whose father passed away from ALS. I do know that if diagnosed with ALS, there is no cure and I would rather be diagnosed with cancer and have a fighting chance than ALS. ALS is like watching your body die while your mind is still fully intact. I cannot imagine what families with a loved one go through watching someone they love, fight a loosing battle. But with more research, I hope and pray that one day we can find a cure. The only way we will find a cure is if it’s funded!
So please I encourage you to take the ALS Ice bucket challenge! I did the challenge and donated. I encourage you to do both to help spread the word.
You can donate at alsa.org
