See How One Couple Is Fighting ALS With Love

When he was just 43, David Adox, an account planner for a creative agency, was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. ALS—or Lou Gehrig’s disease, as it’s sometimes called—is a neurological disease that attacks the body’s nerves, causing weakness and disabilities. People with ALS lose the ability to move all their muscles, and many eventually need support to breathe. The disease affects more than 12,000 people in the United States, and it is always fatal.
