Sorry to hear about your sister. Here is a link to information about ALS treatments: http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/amyotrophic-lateral-sclerosis/basics/treatment/con-20024397
Greetings. From what I understand in talking with one of our experts, this is a rare condition that can be difficult to treat. Even a google search turns up limited information. This seems to be one of the better ones. Good luck!

Thanks for contacting us. We are sorry that you are feeling unwell and agree that you should see a physician. Yes, it is possible to get chicken pox more than once, and it is also possible that one of the illnesses was due to another germ masquerading as chicken pox. And, chicken pox can indeed be very uncomfortable with high fevers; adolescents are usually sicker with chicken pox than are younger children. In addition, you are to be commended for your exercise program! We at Mayo Clinic hope you recover well.
He was 41 years old with a great job and a loving family. Then doctors gave him the horrible news. Cancer. To survive they would have to take his entire left leg and part of his pelvis. The man you're about to meet refused to let this stop him from living a full life. Seven years after the diagnosis and surgery, he's not only healthy, but he's also playing golf. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ythJR5jivj8
Imagine this: A work place where every day you were afraid someone was going to hurt you, make fun of you, or make you feel terrible about yourself. Would you keep that job? Probably not. But every day, we send our kids who are bullied in school into that situation. And victims can suffer the effects for a long time. How can we stop it? Mayo Clinic experts say it's a complex issue that needs to be addressed from many angles. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iRnoB-jshd8
