ALS Ice Bucket Challenge
Charles Kennedy
(Golfer from Florida)
He was responding to a challenge from a friend who told him:
July 15th, 2014
because his cousin suffered from the disease.
"pour ice over your head and I'll donate to the charity of your choice. "
He then challenged

What is ALS?
Mao Zedong
Lou Gehrig
David Niven
5-10% of the time ALS is inherited from a direct relative
90-95% of the time, there are no clear factors for the onset of ALS
ALS is most common amongst white males, non-hispanics, and those aged 60-69
That's about 4 people in every 100,000
Currently around 12,000 people in the US have a definitive ALS diagnosis
Who does it affect?
Symptoms spread from one part of the body (usually an arm or leg) to others.
Muscle Cramps
Slurred Words
Difficulty swallowing
Other facts you should know:
Slowly the body looses control over all muscles. Patients can't eat, speak, walk, or talk without assistance.
ALS is not contagious.
ALS can strike anyone.
Although the life expectancy of an ALS patient averages about two to five years from the time of diagnosis, this disease is variable and many people live with quality for five years and more. More than half of all patients live more than three years after diagnosis.
About twenty percent of people with ALS live five years or more and up to ten percent will survive more than ten years and five percent will live 20 years. There are people in whom ALS has stopped progressing and a small number of people in whom the symptoms of ALS reversed.
ALS occurs throughout the world with no racial, ethnic, or socioeconomic boundaries.
Riluzole, the first treatment to alter the course of ALS, was approved by the FDA in late 1995. This antiglutamate drug was shown scientifically to prolong the life of persons with ALS by at least a few months. More recent studies suggest Riluzole slows the progress of ALS, allowing the patient more time in the higher functioning states when their function is less affected by ALS.
Reports from three separate patient databases described long range experience with Riluzole. All three reports suggest a trend of increasing survival with Riluzole over time.
