Guillermina, my wife, passed away this morning from complications due to ALS. The disease that ravaged her body for over nine years finally won. She fought hard but, in the end, her lungs just stopped working. It is particularly sad because she knew before she died that an effective drug for ALS was just sitting on the hospital shelf, out of reach. A part of me just died but I will continue to fight this horrible disease in her honor.
