ALS is also known as "Lou Gehrig's Disease", and it is one of the cruelest fates around. The victim slowly loses all motor control, until he or she is completely paralyzed, and is unable to speak. In the later stages, the patient cannot even breathe unassisted. The worst part of this is that the patient is totally aware of everything that is happening to him or her.
Now, you guys don't know me from Adam, but I've visited McCovey Chronicles off and on for a few years, and have been to AT&T and thought it was a wonderful park.
My name is Scott Neugroschl, and my SBN nick is "red floyd". My late wife suffered from this hellish disease for three years before succumbing to it.
Therefore, I am asking you all a favor. Please go to the game on 7/7 and help to fight ALS. Do it for me... Do it for her... Do it for Lou Gehrig... I don't care. Just, please go, and help.

Thank you so much,
