ROBERT J MESKO ALS FUND

0N OCTOBER 21, 2016, AFTER MORE THAN A YEAR OF DOCTORS VISITS AND TESTS, I WAS DIAGNOSED WITH ALS (LOU GEHRIG'S DISEASE).  THERE IS CURRENTLY  NO EFFECTIVE TREATMENT FOR ALS. BASICALLY, I WAS GIVEN A DEATH SENTENCE. IT WAS SUGGESTED THAT I LIVE MY LIFE TO THE FULLEST AND ENJOY  THE TIME I HAD LEFT, WHILE I WAS STILL ABLE.  INSTEAD, I HAVE CHOSEN TO FIGHT. I HAVE DONE EXHAUSTIVE RESEARCH, CONSULTED NUMEROUS EXPERTS IN ALTERNATIVE THERAPIES, AND EMBARKED ON A COMPREHENSIVE TREATMENT REGIMEN THAT INCLUDES DIET, HERBAL PROTOCOLS, SUPPLEMENTS, IVS AND INJECTIONS IN AN ATTEMPT TO SLOW THE PROGRESSION OF THIS DISEASE.  BEING OUTSIDE THE PURVIEW OF TRADITIONAL MEDICINE, NONE OF THESE TREATMENTS ARE COVERED BY INSURANCE. IN ADDITION, I HAVE BEEN OFFERED A RAY OF HOPE IN THE APPROVAL OF THE FIRST NEW DRUG (RADICAVA) APPROVED BY THE FDA IN 25 YEARS. WHILE IT OFFERS HOPE, IT HAS ALSO BEEN SAID THAT IT WILL BE PROHIBITIVELY EXPENSIVE. ALS IS A PROGRESSIVE DISEASE, AND THE SOONER I CAN GET A HANDLE ON IT, THE BETTER. I HOPE MY PROTOCOLS AND ALTERNATIVE TREATMENTS ARE HELPING, AND I PRAY THIS NEW DRUG WILL GO A LONG WAY TOWARD PROLONGING MY LIFE AS WELL AS PROTECTING THE QUALITY OF IT.
