Hear inspiration from six who range from 33-55 years old and are all living with ALS, a rare and fatal disease.

This unique BONUS episode is a "must-listen"! ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) also known as Lou Gehrig's disease or the "Ice Bucket Challenge" disease is fatal with no cure. In honor of May being ALS Awareness Month, I chat with six others living with ALS. They all share what they want others to know about living with ALS and insights on what inspires them during the fight of their lives.

Hugs, Lorri

About Lorri Carey

On Friday the 13th, February 2004 at the age of 37, I was told I have ALS. I’m dying from ALS, yet I’m so encouraged to live life to the fullest. I’ve been inspired by so much to stay focused on the positive. I’m dying to tell you about what gives me strength, makes me smile and keeps me hopeful – in hopes of inspiring you too!

    I want to thank you all for making this video. I know that you have many things to do for the ALS cause and I am grateful to be able to hear from some of the people who have been diagnosed with ALS. Karl Runkle is my cousin so we have been able to hear from him through Facebook because his wife and family and friends are so active in fighting ALS. It is important to be able to reach out to others and share our stories. Thank you to all the people who have shared their stories and brought us some strength and perspective to ALS.
