Michael’s story makes you think about how much can you really accomplish. A strong will and a big heart can do big things, ignoring diseases. Unfortunately, Michael passed away on September 1, 2013. Every day we should be thankful and appreciative for what we have. Our possibilities are limitless. Take a minute to think what do you really want to do and what do you want to be. Stop with lame excuses and take a first step to change what you are not happy with, and start moving towards what you want. Therapy Development Institute has announced much progress in developing a promising drug to help fight ALS. They need funds to bring these new developed drugs to patients and improve them. ALS TDI manages a complicated discovery program, validating potential therapeutics; including small molecules, protein biologics, gene therapies and cell-based constructs. So far the drug only prolongs life of a patient only for 2-3 months. Most people with ALS live 2-5 years after their first signs of disease. About 10% of people with ALS survive at least 10 years. This rate of progression makes it difficult to predict therapies.
