Jerry, Tom and Eli Take Ice Bucket Challenge

Ice Bucket Challenge -

The Ice Bucket Challenge is a cause for ALS and it’s been everywhere, including Giants Training Camp. If you don’t already know about the Ice Bucket Challenge, that’s okay, it’s a busy world. Here is some information from the ALS site in a post titled, ALS Ice Bucket Challenge Takes U.S. by Storm:

Currently, there is only one drug approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat ALS, which only modestly extends survival by two to three months. Consequently, ALS is 100 percent fatal. In addition to acclimating to the challenges that come with losing control of voluntary muscle movement, people with the disease progressively lose their ability to eat, speak, walk, and eventually breathe.

“With more people aware and more people engaged in the fight against ALS, we are poised to work collaboratively with not only other ALS organizations, but also with pharmaceutical companies and academia to expedite new treatments for people impacted by the disease,” Newhouse continued.
