Re: ALS, Lyme, heavy metals

Hi, thank you for sharing. We just went to the mayo clinic in Az. The neurologist confirmed ALS as well. We also went to barrow in Scottsdale. Another confirmation. He had the EMG. He is in a skilled nursing facility in AZ. He is also on a respirator now. We are waiting for something to open up in CA. My brother is very hopeful that the rest of his days are independent as possible and he has a good quality of life. Unfortunately , we are constantly hitting road blocks with Medicare and insurance to cover care and assistive devices. He has a great family and he has a good attitude so far. Tell your brother there are a lot of resources out there. We have had a lot of positive responses from the ALS Association. Register your brother and get involved. This disease is a wicked disease.
