Pat Quinn's Battle with ALS

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis- ALS. If you mention that in the last two years, the first thing you probably think about is the Ice Bucket Challenge…a viral Internet sensation that helped support over $200 million in new funding for ALS research, which one day will hopefully rid the world of this devastating disease that affects 35,000 Americans. 

I had the distinct honor and privilege to interview one of the men who helped lead the charge of the Ice Bucket Challenge, Pat Quinn, an ALS patient himself and advocate for raising awareness about the disease. ALS is devastating. It physically deteriorates the body and has taken far too many lives. Pat is a fighter and he’s determined to put an end to it.

With tonight being the 20th Annual Lou Gehrig Sports Awards Benefit, and with Pat being a guy right from Yonkers, I hope you’ll take a few minutes to watch our talk below. Most importantly, I hope that in the spirit of the Ice Bucket Challenge, you'll nominate three people to watch with you!

  • My purpose out here today is to share this article to the world about how Doctor Odunga helped me in getting back my EX-boyfriend who broke up with me 4 months ago. I tried all I could to make him see reasons with me so that we can continue our relationship but he denied me. Thank God for giving me the thought of going into the internet for help, I searched properly and I saw different reviews of Doctor Odunga and I insisted on giving it a try by contacting him via what’s app on (+2348167159012). He gave me reason to live again and he prepared a spell and told me that my Ex-boyfriend will come back to me within 28 hours. Can you believe it, my EX-boyfriend came back to me and our wedding will be held Soon. Contact him now!!! if you need any help. Email: and he does a lot of spells. Once again i want to say am very grateful for your help
