ALS families thank you

I want to thank you for capturing the feelings of so many suffering from ALS and their families/friends in your article on Dr. Bennett's ALS drug [February 24 cover story, "She's dying: His drug could save her"].

This disease may have ransacked the body of my mother, Bev Nicola, but mentally she's untouched. The more the word gets out about this drug and trial, the better chance others will not have to suffer. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.
