Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as called Lou Gehrig’s disease, is a rapidly progressive, fatal neurological disease that attacks the nerve cells (neurons) responsible for controlling voluntary muscles. The average life span from diagnosis is two to five years. There is no cure.
In August 2015, Peter Warlick, an aviation industry leader and a devoted husband and father was diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), a progressive and fatal neuromuscular disease. A man of action, Peter has created Warlick’s Warriors, a campaign to fund groundbreaking research with the goal of ending ALS for future generations.
