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 Thursday, May 23, 2019 at 8:30 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 show is presented as part of MOVE TO INCLUDE, a partnership between WXXI and the Golisano Foundation designed to stimulate community dialogue about the perspectives of people with physical and intellectual disabilities. Its mission is to ultimately build a community that celebrates abilities.
