Program helps ALS sufferers in N. Arizona

I got this through my news alert:

Program helps ALS sufferers in N. Arizona

Two things were interesting here.
  1. May is ALS Awareness Month. I'm not sure who decided this, but it doesn't seem to have caught on. I pay some attention to ALS, and I got half way through May without learning that it was ALS Awareness Month.

  2. ALS patients have trouble traveling great distances. This is obvious now that I see it, but I hadn't considered it before.

The article is really about a program to get registered nurses to help ALS patients. It's a good idea, and I wish it would spread out of Arizona.
