About Me

For those of you that don't know, I was diagnosed with ALS in March 2007. After two more opinions, the diagnosis was confirmed in the fall 2007 at age 39. This coming August (2010) I will have been married for seven years to an incredible wife, who has supported me throughout. During the course of our marriage we have been lucky to have two wonderful, amazing daughters. Sydney, will be 5 in November. Emily, will turn 2 1/2 in August. Currently, we reside in New Jersey with our Beagle, Trixie.

CU Seeks Paralysis Breakthrough

Listen to an interview regarding a possible breakthrough on stem cell research. The researcher discusses how they have been able to develop astrocytes, which many ALS researchers currently believe breakdown in ALS patients and are therefore the cause behind ALS. The interview is approximately 5 minutes long.
