Stephen Winthrop & M. Jane Williamson: “MAKING A LASTING SPLASH AFTER THE ALS ICE BUCKET CHALLENGE OF 2014”
Stephen was diagnosed with ALS (“Lou Gehrig’s Disease”) in November 2013, just months before the viral ice bucket challenge. He and his wife Jane will describe their experiences and how they’ve plunged into education, advocacy, research, and fundraising, to fight the disease on many fronts.
Stephen Winthrop is Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the ALS Association, the first ALS patient to serve. In February he received the Heroes Living with ALS award from the Association. He and his wife Jane live in Wayland with their two children and are NEALS Research Ambassadors and co-captains of their team:”WillWin Against ALS.” See: https://www.
