May 9 – Life Expectancy


Most people with ALS live 2-5 years after their first signs of disease. About 10% of people with ALS survive at least 10 years. This variable rate of disease progression makes prognosis difficult to predict and therapies challenging to develop.

I received my diagnosis in January 2015, with these statistics I won’t be here to see my niece and nephews grow up, or have children of my own. We have to find a cure, if not for myself then for the countless other women just like me – newly married and baby crazy – who deserve a full life.
