ALS also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that attacks motor neurons in the brain and spinal cord and affects muscle function. The Brigance Brigade foundation supports individuals and families affected by ALS by providing services, support and help fund research initiatives. First Sight Vision Care is proud to help sponsor this fundraising event and bring awareness to this condition.
On the field and off the field, OJ remains an active participant in the Ravens organization. Interestingly, although OJ Brigance lost almost all motor function, he continues to have eye muscle control which allows him to use a visual assisted computer to communicate. It’s an honor to meet OJ Brigance and his wife Chanda and learn about their journey with ALS.
