This book fills that gap, offering information and advice gained through their own experiences to help others avoid some of the pitfalls and better meet the challenges presented by this cruel condition.ALS is a formidable disease that leaves sufferers with a fully functioning mind as their muscles waste away, resulting in difficulty walking, talking, swallowing, and even breathing. The average life expectancy of an ALS patient is two to five years from the time of diagnosis.Despite the grim prognosis, this book shows that, with the help of compassionate caregiving by family, friends, and medical practitioners, strong health care advocacy, and some creative problem solving, maintaining some level of quality of life for a loved one with ALS is possible.

In a straightforward manner, The Journey gets down to whats most important for those beginning their own journey with ALS.
