ALS is a terrible disease that 5,600 people are diagnosed with every year in the US alone, and up to 30,000 are currently affected.

But in the words of John Oliver (who I’d nominate in a second if I thought my message could reach him) “Before I make you cry, I want to make you laugh,” or words to that effect. So before you take a look at how truly devastating this disease can be, please take the time to witness the insanity below and you can donate here.
