Mathew Brown wheels around the main floor of his house into a front room that’s been fashioned into a bedroom. He gets fitted for his BiPAP, or a machine that helps him breathe.

“I was told by my doctor that if I didn’t use my BiPAP for a day and a half I would pass away,” said Brown.

The 55 year old was diagnosed with ALS just over two years ago. His progression had been moderate until a bout of pneumonia last year set him back.

“When I came home I was literally knocked right off my feet because I was no longer able to walk,” he explained.

Brown said he’s hopeful for future ALS patients after news this week of research at Western University of a potential cure for ALS(opens in a new tab).
