Thanks for signing up!
You may remember that a couple of weeks ago I took the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. It was good fun for a good cause and, as I stated in the blog about it, could help MS research as well.
In my video, I challenged the president of MS Ireland, the founders of Shift.MS, and the chief research officer of the National MS Society to take some ice for the team. I thought you might like to see the updates.
As of today, we have videos from all three organizations!
Ava Battles of MS Ireland had already done taken her bucket of ice as she has a personal connection to motor neuron disease. She sent me link to her video as soon as she found out that she had been challenged. No sense taking a bucket twice.
George Pepper, founder of Shift.MS was taking his bucket challenge (though you can see he had a bit of confusion…) the same weekend I took mine.
Finally, Dr Timothy Coetzee of the National MS Society waited until we were in meetings together last week for his bucket. I was honored to pour the ice water over Tim myself.
Now mind you that it was the hottest week of the summer in New York City. I thought about taking an ice bath again simply for the cooling.
As you can read in Dr Coetzee’s blog about the event, he too believes that research into ALS can help MS, and the other way around. He even mentions specific research into myelin reproduction cells that are critical factors in both diseases.
So, I’ve taken my bucket (or shovels-full, in my case) and those I’ve challenged others as well.
Have you been called out in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge? Care to share links to your videos?
Wishing you and your family the best of health.
