Steve Gleason was an NFL superstar who had it all. He had a job that most men dreamed of, and a family that loved him and cared for him.
Recently, Steve discovered something that had the potential to change his life forever. He discovered that all the strength he had both physical and mental, could be taken from him and he could no longer be able to play NFL.
At age 34, he was diagnosed with ALS.
You may have heard of ALS from the Ice Bucket Challenge. Do you remember when this concept went viral on Facebook last year?
When he and his wife discovered the terrible news that Steve has ALS, they were both in a state of shock, and complete confusion.
However, as he began to come to terms with what was going on, his reaction down the line is much more powerful. He decides that he is not going to let this diagnosis stop them from creating the family and life that they always dreamed of creating together.
