Michael Lopez Jr. Celebration Of Life - Saying Good By to All American "Magic Mike" RIP: 1/13/2013

★ Final Farewell To Mike Lopez Jr.★

It is hard to imagine anyone who followed football in Oregon in the 1980′s not remembering his name. It struck fear into many an opponent and his #19 was called and shouted often at Oregon State where he did some legendary things. He was one of the greatest athletes to every come out of Oregon and was an All American and named Gatorade Player Of The Year. The 1981 Graduate of Aloha was truly special in every way and was known by those closest to him as “Magic Mike”! ♥

ALS Ice Bucket Challenge is BACK! #everyaugustuntilacure #strikeoutALS

ALS Ice Bucket Challenge is BACK!  #everyaugustuntilacure #strikeoutALS | #ALS AWARENESS #LouGehrigsDisease #PARKINSONS | Scoop.it

Co-Founders Message:

You may ask, “Why do the Ice Bucket Challenge again?” And we understand. It’s easy to see it as a one-time event. But let’s make it more than that. Let’s make it into a movement. Even though we've raised $220 million worldwide, a new ALS treatment can cost up to $2 billion, while the costs of ALS patient care can be over $250,000 out-of-pocket per year, above and beyond what insurance covers. So grab a bucket and a camera and join us. Be creative or keep it simple. Whatever you do, please make a donation to an ALS charity and remember to have fun! We officially challenge YOU to take the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, this August and #everyAugustuntilacure.

- ALS Ice Bucket Challenge Co-founders
Pat Quinn, Pete Frates

Music blares from speakers at Next Level Mixed Martial Arts in Tigard as Pat Sousa punches the air in time to a soundtrack of 1980s jams.

Sousa has been taking boxing lessons at the gym two days a week for months, but he says he has no intention of ever hitting anyone.

Instead, he’s going toe-to-toe with a very different kind of foe. He’s fighting Parkinson’s disease.

Sousa is a member of the Rock Steady Rose City Rebels, a group of Parkinson’s patients who use boxing as a way to help abate some of the disease’s symptoms.

n 1928, the pathologist Harrison Stanford Martland described the clinical features of a distinct neuropsychiatric disorder in boxers known as the “punch-drunk syndrome.” Several decades later this became known as “dementia pugilistica,” reflecting a belief that it was a disease almost exclusive to former boxers.  More recent neuropathological studies have identified this condition in persons with other forms of head injury, including athletes exposed to repetitive brain injury in a wide range of sports. Thus, almost 90 years after Dr. Martland’s first.......................
