The first thing that will come to mind is change. The Ice Bucket Challenge will forever be remembered as the event that changed the trajectory of ALS. Change.
Pat Quinn, co-founder of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge and ALS fighter himself emailed me that quote in response to my question, when the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge is talked about every august until a cure is found, what is the first thing that will come to mind?Mr. Quinn, Pete Frates and the late Anthony Senerchia Jr.
all were diagnosed with ALS, all three men are responsible for taking over the world in the summer of 2014 and changing the ALS world forever.Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, or more commonly known as Lou Gehrigs disease is a very rare disease in the world, it does not have a known cure. The disease deteriorates all motor skills, muscle tissue, and physical body function other than brain ability.
The body is shutting down and the brain has all of its function, it is horrible.a bunch of families like Quinn for the Win and the Senerchias decided to try and live their lives for others, said Andrew Frates the brother of Pete Frates when he was asked what was the real start to the famous ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. In the summer of 2014, Anthony Senerchia Jrs wife Jeannette received a Facebook notification that she had been challenged to pour a bucket of ice water over her head to raise awareness for any cause.
The next day she challenged three of her girlfriends to the same challenge except before Jeannette poured the water over her head, she said she was doing it to raise awareness for ALS. Not only was she raising awareness, she challenged her friends to also donate to the ALS foundation. From there, the internet did its work.
Thats when the Ice Bucket Challenge became the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. Rachel Patterson Moles of the International Alliance of ALS/MND Association described the challenge as a phenomenon, and clearly unique. Mrs.
Patterson Moles association gave the three co-founders the 2017 Humanitarian Award for their work in non-science related work towards a cure for this disease. At the end of November of this year Anthony Senerchia Jr., passed away after a fourteen- year battle with ALS, which remained undefeated.
Anthony Senerchia Jr. was the inspiration behind the fad of the world in the summer of 2014. He never wanted anything in his life other than to give back to others, never above you, never below you, always right by your side, was written on the cards handed out at his wake.
He will be by the side of every single person who is told they have this awful disease not just because his inspiration helped the ALS Association garner more than one hundred million dollars to put towards research for a cure but because he was selfless when he had the ability to be as selfish as he wanted.Pat Quinn and Pete Frates were the men that helped take Anthony and Jeannettes small town sensation global. Pat and Pete are both currently fighting ALS, they were diagnosed in the early part of this decade.
Pat is from Yonkers, NY and Pete is from Boston, MA, both men have foundations set up in their names to raise awareness and money towards the research for a cure of ALS. Pat had a mutual friend of the Senerchias in Pelham, NY (Senerchias hometown) and quickly after Pat was shown the videos of the challenge, he got word to Boston to Team Frates. Without Pete Frates connections to the Red Sox, NFL MVP Matt Ryan and the city of Boston the challenge may have flamed out.
Thankfully Pat got the word to Pete whom had met through their own connections, and shortly Pete was on ESPNs SportCenter for taking the challenge in the outfield of Fenway Park. From there it reached the President of the United States, Taylor Swift, Ellen Degeneres, and quite frankly, everyone. After the summer that year, Facebook had the three men and their families to headquarters in Manhattan, it was there Facebook presented the families with data showing the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge had been the most viral trend ever in the history of Facebook.
Anthony Senerchia was the inspiration behind that trend, and he never admitted it. Nor would he ever take credit for it. He wanted nothing but to help others.
That he did.Imagine being told that you have a disease that hasnt had a single stride made in its cure since Lou Gehrig was diagnosed in 1939. Anthony was told in 2003.
From that day until his last he was dedicated to his family, his community and his fight not only against ALS but to make the world better. He achieved that goal RELATED QUESTION What is the cost of a CNC machine? CNC router machine has a very high cost, high production efficiency, saving the cost of processing, attracted a lot of business.
Many CNC router buyers often received uneven offer from CNC router manufacturers and sellers in the purchase of the CNC router Machine, in this case, many buyers tend to fall into the trap of CNC router price, while ignoring the CNC router quality. So, how to choose the right CNC router? and what factors affect the CNC router price?
STYLECNC will introduce the factors affecting the CNC router prices as following: 1. the brand: with a product, if the product brand is different, the price is not the same, I believe we all know this truth. of course, big brands of CNC router price will be higher, relative to the after-sales service will better.
2. the cost of materials: different CNC woodworking router production materials are different, and the gap is great. The CNC router prices with good accessories and materials will be relatively high.
3. R & D and technical inputs. CNC wood machine is a high-tech CNC equipment.
In order to ensure the leading product technology and product quality, well-known brands of CNC router manufacturers have a large number of scientific research costs. In the assembly of the staff, these CNC router manufacturers will hire experienced engineers. These two aspects of investment, is an important guarantee of CNC router quality.
Of course, the corresponding increase in product costs. 4. parts and raw materials.
Good CNC router raw materials and accessories procurement are regular manufacturers of quality products, quality and after-sale service guarantee. As we all know, good quality products, prices are higher than the average product price, because in raw materials and accessories, the cost is relatively higher, the price will be higher. 5.
suppliers and agents. Factory direct sales and sales agents are also there is a certain price gap, factory direct sales will be cheaper than the agents, but agents cheaper than manufacturers, these are uncertain factors. 5.
after-sales service investment. In order to ensure every purchase of CNC router buyers, timely after-sales service, regular CNC router manufacturers usually equipped with a number of proficient in CNC router operation and technical service personnel, after receiving the customer calls, a strong after-sales service team can ensure timely provide technical support and maintenance services, to ensure the smooth progress of the customer production and processing. Above is the six factors affecting the CNC router prices, so STYLECNC believes that in the purchase of a CNC router machine, not only focus on the CNC router price and CNC router quality, but also focus on the CNC router service life, machining efficiency, accuracy and after-sales service to make a choice, to choose a suitable CNC router for their products processing.
