ALS Funding and Research..what!?!?

Yup, that's an important topic to me. Amidst all the large sums in the economic stimulus package passed last Friday was an additional $10B for NIH (National Institutes of Health).

The ALS Association, noted, that this "...represents a nearly 18% increase in funding over 2008 and will help to increase support for ALS research at the NIH, which is the single largest source of ALS research funding in the world."

Lou Gehrig's disease is nasty, cruel and affects as many as 30K Americans. It occurs throughout the world with is not limited to any racial, ethnic or socioeconomic group.
