Michael Lopez Jr. Celebration Of Life - Saying Good Bye to All American "Magic Mike" RIP: 1/13/2013 - In Loving Memory of Michael - Forever in Our Hearts #19

★ 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”! ♥

The men who were there Sunday - the 49ers from 1981, the franchise's first Super Bowl season - love to talk about "The Catch," to recall it fondly, but there is an almost unspoken fear factor.

What if it never happened? What if Joe Montana's fall-away pass does not thread that cosmic needle? What if Dwight Clark does not bound off that invisible trampoline and snag the ball with his fingertips?

Because of everything that The Catch set in motion - all those Super Bowl wins! - it's scary to think what would have happened i

Phase 3 Clinical Trial Targeting Lou Gehrig's Disease Gets $15.9 Million Investment From Stem Cell Agency

Phase 3 Clinical Trial Targeting Lou Gehrig's Disease Gets $15.9 Million Investment From Stem Cell Agency | #ALS AWARENESS #LouGehrigsDisease #PARKINSONS | Scoop.it

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, is a particularly nasty, almost always fatal neurological condition that has no effective treatment and no cure. Now the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM) is investing $15.9 million in a therapy to try and change that. ALS attacks motor neurons, the cells in the brain and spinal cord that control our muscles and movement. Over time the disease  destroys a person’s ability to speak, to swallow, to move, even to breathe.
