What’s the charity match about?
The charity match in support of the disease ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) is an initiative by former Barcelona goalkeeper and coach Juan Carlos Unzué. Juan was sadly diagnosed with the incurable degenerative neurological condition just over two years ago.
What exactly is ALS?
ALS= Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord and leads to the person losing control of their body muscles bit by bit. Sufferers may eventually lose the ability to move, speak, eat and breathe.
Once diagnosed, the majority of sufferers die within 5 years.
Most people who develop ALS are between the ages of 40 and 70, although the disease can still occur at a younger age.
It occurs throughout the world with no
racial, ethnic or socioeconomic boundaries.
There are currently more than 200,000 cases of ALS worldwide.
There is currently no cure or effective treatment to stop
the progression of ALS.
