Dan have an aggressive form of the disease called Bulbar ALS.
He started to exhibit symptoms of ALS back in November 2018. It took over 6 months to diagnose Dan with the disease.
In that short space of time, Dan lost the ability to talk, to walk by himself, to undertake daily tasks, such as getting out of bed in the morning, or brushing his teeth. Simple daily tasks, that we take for granted are impossible for Dan now.
Which daily tasks do you take for granted? In this short video Trista (Dan’s wife) explains how every day activities are very difficult for her husband. ALS sufferers are unable to control voluntary muscle movement, as their nerve cells (neurons), deteriorate gradually and stop sending messages to the muscles. Dan is 1 of 30,000 sufferers of ALS, to whom this is happening – join our voice, visit ‘How To Help‘, and help make a difference for everyone affected by this terrible disease. Thank you!
