ALS Patient Breaks His Silence

A friend lost her husband to ALS a few days ago. Just like Don and Lorraine Moir, the couple never expected to face such a debilitating disease. In the Moir’s story, Lorraine tells us that she did not think Don even realized how quickly he was losing functioning. Six years after saying “for better or worse,” Don and Lorraine found themselves facing a disease that would take everything including Don’s voice. Fifteen years of silence. Fifteen years of not communicating the basics like “tissue, please.” Fifteen years until technology was developed to break the silence. Watch the miracle.
