Patients Like Me

Not HR related, but something that is very important to me.

A brilliant talk from Jamie Heywood (via TedMed), a man whose brother died from the same illness that claimed the life of my beautiful mother. Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis. ALS. Also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease.

In the video above, Jamie talks about Patients Like Me, an incredible website that both aggregates medical data and acts as a support network for those who have illnesses in common.

I only wish that this existed while my mother was still alive. I know she would have found great comfort in it.
