Mom has bulbar symptoms

Hi, I am new to this board and have found the information on it very helpful. Thanks to all who share their experiences here. It has really helped me. My mom has been having slurred speech, swallowing and some walking difficulties. She went to see a neurologist a few weeks ago and he suspects ALS. She will see an ALS specialist next week. My question is, if she has bulbar onset ALS, is that a more aggressive form of the disease? Any help would be appreciated. I'm so worried because she does not want to face this at all, which I understand.
