FORT COLLINS, COLORADO - SEPTEMBER 29, 2006.
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a debilitating disease that robs a person the ability to initiate and control voluntary muscle movement. Steve now relies on his hospice home care nurse, Barbie Webber, five mornings a week to get Steve out of bed, showered and dressed. The two remaining mornings are covered by part-time nurses.
