He died yesterday of ALS, at the incredibly ripe old age of 76.
I am 34, I live in Santa Barbara with my baby boy Carl and my wife Rachael. I have ALS, and a life expectancy of about 2-3 more years. There is still no cure and no good treatment.
Please consider donating $7.60 or $76 in honor of Stephen's memory.
All money will go to the ALS Therapy Development Institute to fund crucial research.
ALS TDI is a nonprofit research organization fully dedicated to combating ALS. You can read about them online. Their main project right now involves getting the drug prospect AT-1501 into a clinical trial. (Disclosure: I have participated in some of TDI's patient surveys and research and its employees have given me some advice about living with ALS, but I have no formal relationship with the organization.)
When this campaign is over I will withdraw the funds to my bank account and mail TDI a check for the full withdrawal.
