Program helps ALS sufferers in N. Arizona
Two things were interesting here.
- 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.
- 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.
