Made popular by the "ice bucket challenge" in 2014, the average life expectancy from diagnosis is three to five years, with rapidly deteriorating motor neurons causing severe muscle atrophy, loss of speech, compromised ability to eat without intervention, and ultimately death due to severely compromised ability to breathe without assistance. Aside from two minimally effective drugs, there are no treatments for this disease.
With the unfortunate progression of this illness, Eric was unable to continue his job that supported his livelihood. He has had to become increasingly dependent on his partner Brian and his loved ones for increased care both financially and physically.
Eric has his eye on various clinical trials and treatments however these could take years to become available. Sales from this campaign will help support Eric.
Please consider a shirt purchase or donation to Eric's online fundraiser.
