One-of-a-kind Lou Gehrig Day cards to be auctioned

ALS, commonly called Lou Gehrig’s Disease, is a progressive and terminal neurodegenerative disease that attacks nerve cells and pathways in the brain and spinal cord. It eventually leads to muscle weakness and atrophy. The disease affects about 30,000 people in the U.S. and about 500,000 around the world. It can affect anyone of any age, race or gender, and there is no cure.
