Second Opinion: ALS

Second Opinion: ALS

Sun, 01/20/2019 - 12:30pm - 1:00pm

Also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, ALS physically and mentally affects each person differently. Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a devastating, progressive neurological disease with no cure. In this heartfelt episode, experts present data and Gary Temoyan shares his story, talking about his diagnosis, treatments, progression, and symptom management, which is maximizing his quality of life for as long as possible. Second Opinion: ALS airs Sunday, January 20, 2019 at 12:30 p.m. on WXXI-TV.

Second Opinion is made possible in part by support from the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association (BCBSA), which sponsored the series since 2004.

This  program is part of Dialogue on Disability, a partnership between WXXI and Al Sigl Community of Agencies designed to stimulate community dialogue about the perspectives and abilities of people with physical and intellectual disabilities. During the week-long initiative, which runs January 14 through January 20, 2019 WXXI presents special programming on TV, radio, and at the Little Theatre.

Dialogue on Disability is made possible through support from the Fred L. Emerson Foundation. The partnership between WXXI and Al Sigl Community of Agencies is supported by the Golisano Foundation and Move to Include, a project designed to build a more inclusive community by inspiring and motivating people to embrace different abilities and include all people in every aspect of community life.
