I’ve seen lots of gifs of actors doing the ALS Ice Bucket challenge on my dash lately, but what was the start?

Baseball star Pete Frates was diagnosed with ALS, amytrofic lateral sclerosis, a neuro-degenerative disease. Life expectance: 3 to 5 years. Signals from your brain will stop being transported to your body, in the end one will stop being able to speak, swallow and will likely die from dyspnea ( the ability to breath). 

It is a terminal disease, meaning anyone diagnosed will die from it. And it is not an easy process.

Please support ALS awareness, even if you are only reblogging the gifs of actors and celebrities doing the challenge
