general_slider_-_nina_s_high_rollers.jpg.png

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, also known as ALS is a neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Motor neurons reach the brain to the spinal cord and from the spinal cord to the muscles throughout the body. The progressive degeneration of the motor neurons in ALS eventually leads to their death. When the motor neurons die, the ability of the brain to initiate and control muscle movement is lost. With voluntary muscle action progressively affected, patients in the later stages of the disease may become paralyzed.

Please join KSBR News Director Dawn Kamber as she welcomes Sara Collins, who has been living with ALS for two years and ALS Association Orange County Chapter Executive Director Patty Simon.
