Lost a great friend and employee this morning to the horrible disease known as ALS (remember the ice bucket challenge).

He was 37 years old and fought long and hard for the last 4 years. He was the #1 all time fundraiser for the NorCal ALS chapter.

The last year he was fully "locked in". He could only move his eyes, but still sharp as a needle mentally. I find peace knowing his is no longer suffering.

I will forever miss you Nate

Sorry for your loss man... glad he isn't suffering any more.
 
I’m sorry for your loss. I just found out I lost I friend this week no answer as to why yet.
 
RIP

Short story but my wife designed wheelchairs for a lot of people that ALS among other things. She worked with that population daily for years.

She got a glioblastoma brain tumor the size of a baseball and eventually died. All the time she said at least it wasn't ALS

Glad your friend isn't suffering anymore. Truly.
 
He knew he was gonna go today. He wrote out his good bye last night but left the time of death blank for his dad to fill in today and then post it....:frown:

I feel you op. Lost my aunt about five years ago to it and now my mom this October. ALS is nothing anyone would ever wish upon another. Somehow, my mom kept her sense of humor and came to terms with the fact that her life was ending. It's tough for everyone involved.
 
rough way to go, but it certainly sounds like he was at peace with his passing. pretty amazing that he was able to do a massive amount of awareness raising for the cause before it took him.

a life too short and a life well lived :beer:
 
Fuck that! Very sorry man.
 
Sorry OP. RIP Nate. :(

Verys sorry for your loss as well. Do you think dealing with ill people somehow affected her own health? just curious..
 
Sorry for your loss, man.

His goodbye message was awesome, though, and really shows how at peace he was with it.
 
Very sorry for your loss, OP. And I really applaud you for sticking with him to the end--that takes a ton of strength with this disease.
 
Sorry for the loss.

It’s one of the diseases my wife is working on to find a testament for.
 
Sorry OP. RIP Nate. :(

No all of those types of syndromes and conditions are genetic and not contagious.

A glioblastoma is rare and something that occurs from some type of environmental factor but knowing what it was is impossible. Could have been her shampoo, a chemical in the upholstery of her car, anything. I will never know what caused it.
