Talking With Children

Experts unanimously agree, children should be told when a parent has ALS. Avoiding discussion conveys the erroneous notions that ALS is an embarrassing or shameful disease that fosters anxiety and should be feared.

Humor is a Great Medicine

Humor can reduce pain, improve blood vessel function, relax muscles and stimulate the body's immune system. It also appears to improve memory and problem solving abilities and spurs creativity.

The OBI Story

Obi™ is a new and revolutionary assistive dining device that is designed to empower those afflicted with differing abilities, such as ALS, giving people back the dignity and independence of feeding themselves, while enabling a caregiver to eat at the same time.
