I remember when I first heard that Jason Becker had this ALS. What he has achieved afterwards is incredible.
I never thought in a thousand years that my father would get this evil condition. He got diagnosed a few months ago but it's seems likely that he had it for some time. And because unlike the U.S., here in Ireland we would have to pay 300000 a year for ventilation to help my father breathe. We are not millionaires, it's just impossible. Getting ALS in Ireland is really a 3 year death sentence. Jason is very lucky to be in the U.S.
