Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), often referred to as "Lou Gehrig's disease", is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord. As the disease progresses the ability of the brain to initiate and control muscle movement is lost. After Frank E. Mayak's death from ALS, his wife, Shirley, and his family wished to be sure those living with ALS, their families, friends, and survivors would be able to find support and information.
