ALS and the much-needed ice bucket for PH medical research

When a colleague nominated me for the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, I decided neither to post a video nor to donate to any of the foundations involved. One reason is that I find the challenge a bit self-congratulatory, which, instead of serving its purpose of advocating awareness about the disease, ended up as a craze with many of those who braved the challenge remaining unaware of what the letters A-L-S represent.
