Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), often referred to as “Lou Gehrig’s Disease,” is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Motor neurons reach from the brain to the spinal cord and from the spinal cord to the muscles throughout the body.

Kobe Bryant also did it his own way. While others are getting splashed by a bucket full of water, Kobe Bryant did a head-down ice bath, completely submerging himself. Did that temperature gauge really say 9* Fahrenheit?
