AMYOTROPHIC LATERAL SCLEROSIS (ALS)
ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease, is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord. People living with ALS gradually lose their ability to move, speak, swallow and eventually breathe. There is no cure for ALS.
My son, James Lawrence Hagemann passed away April 14, 2016, four and a half years after ALS was diagnosed. Many of you have seen my tributes to him on my Facebook postings.
Last year I was a member of the Hagemann Team that walked to defeat ALS and will walk again this year Saturday, June 2nd at Cantigny Park, Wheaton, IL.
