Ice bucket challenge... now what?

So you dumped some icy-cold water over your head last summer and challenged some friends. You gave a couple bucks to the ALS Association. Everyone was doing it. You did it. Maybe you got tired of seeing them and then the trend died off.

And it was over.


NO. Not right.

Because then the research began. And this medical breakthrough happened.

I've said it once, and I'll say it again-- THANK YOU for participating in this event, which is now an annual thing.

My family is grateful. I AM GRATEFUL.

This small gesture has given me an enormous amount of hope that no one else will have to watch their aunt wither away slowly and eventually die from ALS.

And hope, my friends, is priceless.
