Phil Timp didn’t choose to die young. He didn’t choose the brutally debilitating disease that delivered his death. He certainly didn’t choose to give life to and raise a daughter with severe physical disabilities.

Michael Lopez Jr. Celebration Of Life - Saying Good By to All American "Magic Mike"

★ 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”! ♥

Food and Drug Administration: FDA Accelerated Approval (Phase 4) of Genervon's GM6 for Use In ALS | #ALS AWARENESS #LouGehrigsDisease #PARKINSONS | Scoop.it

My name is Nick, I am 54-years old and in October 2011, I was diagnosed with ALS. Today, I am in a wheelchair and cannot walk or stand. My arms grow weaker almost every day and my breathing is starting to be affected. I used to be very active but now I can only leave my home when I have someone with me who's strong enough to lift me into my wheelchair once I'm done scooting down to the bottom of the stairs on my butt. It can feel like I'm a 100-year old man who can't do things for himself anymore. At 54, I should still be a vibrant part of my community, but this disease is kicking me where it hurts.
Through the enthusiasm generated by the Ice Bucket Challenge, many people now know that ALS is a degenerative neurological disease that currently affects over 30,000 Americans, and as it stands the disease is always fatal. Most people with ALS are given only 2-5 years to live. When I was diagnosed, I was devastated - it took me months to accept it. Although I am now resolved, I have not lost hope.
Currently, there is only one drug available to treat ALS (riluzole).........

SENATE provides new incentives and opportunities to develop treatments for ALS.

SENATE provides new incentives and opportunities to develop treatments for ALS. | #ALS AWARENESS #LouGehrigsDisease #PARKINSONS | Scoop.it
Just before Congress adjourned for the year this week, Senators Michael Bennet (D-CO) and Orrin Hatch (R-UT) introduced the Senate version of the MODDERN Cures Act, legislation that would provide new incentives and opportunities to develop treatments for ALS.  Moreover, nearly 100 Representatives had cosponsored the House bill. These are significant milestones that not only indicate the legislation is gaining momentum, but also that Congress could take action on the bill early in 2015. 
    
Earlier this week, the President signed into law H.R. 83, the Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act, 2015, to fund the federal government through September 2015.  
 
As we reported in previous Advocacy Updates, the law provides $7,820,000 for the National ALS Registry in FY 2015, a more than 30% increase over last year! Additionally, the law includes $7,500,000 in continued funding for the ALS Research Program (ALSRP) at the Department of Defense.  The law provides $30 billion for the National Institutes of Health (NIH), $150 million more than last year, and specifically supports funding for ALS research.  Moreover, the law provides $1.6 billion for the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), which is $17 million more than last year. 
 
Thank you to everyone who reached out to Congress this year to make these and other successes possible!!!  

Happy Holidays!
