About me

Gender MALE
Occupation Retired
Location Hillsborough, New Jersey
Introduction In 2003, I was forced into early retirement by ALS (aka Lou Gehrig’s Disease), from a successful career as a management consultant. Facing the nightmare that my life was about to end prematurely, I began to contemplate the horrors of a difficult demise, abandoning my family, financial ruin, and other emotionally crushing issues. It took about a month to shake off the depression, and get busy. Since traditional medicine offers no cure or effective treatment, and the expectation of certain death, I began exploring alternative medicine and healing practices. Along the way, I have experienced miracles of friendship, community, personal insight, courage, strength, and healing. As a result, I am now a member of an elite group – the less than 10% of PALS (persons with ALS) who have survived 10 years or more. I intend to keep exploring and learning until I heal completely, or until medical science finds a cure. I am currently seeking help to publish a book about my experiences. By sharing my story, I hope to inspire and motivate others with difficult challenges to find creative, productive and satisfying ways to persevere.
