I am sure you all have been seeing everyone “freezing” their gizzards off in the summer here lately.  It’s called the ice bucket challenge.  It is to help benefit researchers in help to raise money for this terrible disease.  ALS aka Lou Gehrig Disease is a progressive  disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord.

Let’s think about our muscles for a second.  They help us walk, talk, see, feel, lift, etc.  Think about a parent with ALS that can’t even pick up their child because they have lost all function in their arms.  Or how about the father that wants to walk his daughter down the aisle?

Some of us take for granted being able to dress ourselves, brush our hair/teeth, eat solid foods, drink, or just to even talk.  This disease attacks the muscles in your body and you are not able to control it.  The ice bucket challenge gives us a shock from the freezing water.  Think about falling in ice water.  Our body freezes up, muscles get tense and not able to work.  The ice bucket challenge does not even bring us that do take movement for granted any kind of knowledge to what people with ALS goes through.  But, for just that second, we are froze in our position when that ice water hits our warm bodies.  That second is how they feel at all times.  There is no thawing out and being able to move again.

Please go to the link below and learn about this disease.  Take the challenge and donate. Never thought I would actually be happy to freeze.
