Re: I want to help my friend who has ALS breaks my heart that your friend is suffering so...ALS killed my mother 10 years ago after she suffered with it for more than 2 years. I don't know about any stem cell treatment abroad as the research at that time was very very limited. I would recommend any and all actions you can do to facilitate treatment. In the meantime...all you can do is be supportive and understanding. To me it's a very vicious disease due to the fact that you lose your motor coordination and your nervous system debilitates but you are still cognizant. it's brutal to watch someone endure this. I wish you and the afflicted the very best. God Bless.
