Hello, my name is Noah benShea, and I am the National Laureate for
The ALS Association. I am honored to be involved in this historic effort to bring
greater awareness to Lou Gehrig’s Disease and the need to fund critical
research to bring new therapies and hopefully a cure to those with ALS. Like
any other kid who grew up around baseball, I never dreamt my life would
be entwined with the life of Lou Gehrig. But then, if ALS teaches us anything,
it is that life is not a dream.
This doesn’t mean we don’t say anything until we are past anger,
denial or the like, but it does mean we are being straight with ourselves about
what we’re feeling facing this monster.
