For those who don't know, Stephen Hawking is one of the greatest theoretical physicists in the world. I do hope he pulls through, my mother-in-law died of ASL some years ago.

His contributions to humanity are rarely equaled ... Godspeed Professor Hawking!

It is amazing to see him, such a frail body but a mind full of such intellect.

Sadly, that's the way of ALS, it robs you of everything, yet leaves you alert, awake and fully aware of all that you've lost ... Stephen has given the ALS community so much hope, as it generally kills in 18 months to 5 years!

In addition to his great contributions to scientific knowledge, I believe that Dr. Hawking has generously arranged for posthumous research on his body so science can pursue what gave him such resilience against ALS. Even having passed the Great Singularity, he'll be helping science and those living with ALS.

Of course, I wish him quick recovery and hope that day holds off a while longer.
