Angela Frederick, diagnosed in February 2013 at age 39.
Hi, my name is Angela Frederick. I live in Montana with my husband and two teenage kids. I was diagnosed with ALS on my 39th birthday, February 13, 2013. ALS has taken away my independence, my career, my ability to care for my kids, and my ability to enjoy the things that I used to enjoy. I can barely walk, have trouble feeding myself, my breathing has gotten weaker, and my quality of life is not what it should be. But I do have faith, and ALS cannot take that away.
