Diagnosed in 1997 at age 45
After he was diagnosed at age 42, Steve took a scientific approach to his disease. He figured out early on that lots of water, antioxidants and a low glycemic index diet were key to minimize nerve damage and that good liver function was essential for detoxification. He was in contact with ALS scientists and researchers around the world and was the first person we know of to create an ALS website specifically to share and communicate ALS info. He has helped thousands of PALS. He is now in his 60’s.
