    "Steve Meersman's long goodbye started with a benign fall. At 38, he was taking the garbage out when he tripped over his own legs. Within a few weeks, he had lost movement in his left hand. Two years later, he was dead. "This is your worst nightmare. With your mind sharp, having total sensation, but complete paralysis," Steve wrote in a blog he kept. "Stephen King couldn't come up with a worse scenario. ... Then you find out that there is no treatment, no way to reverse it and no one is ever cured." A retired Air Force surgeon, Steve was two years into a private practice in New Hampshire when he was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, known as ALS, or Lou Gehrig's disease." - excerpt by Jason Kosena, Fort Collins Coloradoan, April 2007.
