Jade Nicole Burman's curator insight, November 8, 2014 9:21 PM

There are cases actually where people with diseases met over social media and one day came together because of the make a wish foundation. That's just another great example of the wonderful effects social media does have in our world today.

Glenda Schroeder's insight:

When David was diagnosed by neurologist at Hopkins they brought the ALS clinic director in and first thing she told us was he needs 3000 to 3500 calories daily. Not as easy as one may think to consume that much, especially if you aren't a big eater to begin with and do not like desserts! I make him 2 shakes a day at about 1100 calories each. I should own stock in Haagan Daz ice cream, it is highest calorie content ice cream.
