My ALS Journey: 8/n with Easter Present

I’m happy to announce the second money-raising campaign for ALS research. This time, I’m proud to say that Andreas Fertig, Bartłomiej Filipek, Jason Turner, and Dmitry Vostokov will participate.

My ALS Journey so far

C++ Classes and Mentoring

In the last three weeks, I have given three online classes. Additionally, each Friday, there is my mentoring Q&A. So far, my breath support is good, but I have serious issues with writing. This will hopefully be fixed when I get my next tool to lift my arms in the next few days. To get it was a 2-months fight.

My Daily Challenges: Steps

I have serious issues mastering my steps, both up and down. I’m often particularly weak in the evening, so Beatrix and I sleep in the guest room. My issue is that I cannot find my balance and don’t get enough air. A few days ago, Beatrix and I developed a technique with a bar that allows me to go up. In the next months, we will move from our house into an apartment without steps.

Our Money-Raising Campaign

Research for ALS is heavily underfunded. Let’s change this.

When you buy one of the following books, the money will go directly to ALS research. The deal is valid for one week (4th April included).
