Chances are, if you’ve been on Facebook or the internet any time in the past few weeks, you’ve seen the ALS Ice Bucket challenge. In fact, half of us have probably even done it (thank you to everyone who has). It’s a tremendous boon to the research supporting finding a cure for ALS and other motor neuron disorders. And although many people have heard of this devastating illness, not many have a complete understanding of just how quickly it can ravage a person.

Often Awesome is a web series that follows the life of a young man shortly after his diagnosis, and documents the physical, emotional and social impact this illness has on him, his wife, and friends. You’ll see his struggles, his hopes and his reliance on assistive technology, as it becomes his only means to communicate as his body shuts down.

Grab your tissues, and don’t miss this chance to learn more about a disease that we all hope to beat.
