In April 2019, Chris, an assistant general manager of the NHL’s Calgary Flames, was lifting weights when he noticed two of the fingers on his right hand felt numb. Not even a year earlier, Chris’ dad had passed away from ALS. He has also lost two uncles and one cousin to the disease.
Two months after that day in the gym, Chris was diagnosed with ALS and given 6-18 months to live.
This blog chronicles our story, and here are links to others who have helped to tell it.
