THIS MAN HAS ALS, AND HIS ICE BUCKET CHALLENGE WILL MAKE YOU LAUGH. THEN IT’LL MAKE YOU CRY

The video begins humorously as Anthony Carbajal, a photographer, dresses up in a neon bikini top and soaps up a car before being doused with ice water. 

So watch the full video here and laugh out loud at the first half and then get ready to tear up in the second half. 

My problem with what he says: Pharmaceutical companies.

Fuck Big Pharma, especially with genetic disorders such as ALS. Give my field money! Let Genetics heal you, you idiots!

Sorry, I feel very strongly about the waste of money that is pharmaceutical research on genetic disease.

I have hemophilia which is a genetic disease. Without pharmaceutical research, I’d have to receive routine blood transfusions and risk the contraction of diseases such as HIV/AIDs which there have been cases of prior to not even 10 years before I was born.

I understand the financial difficulties when it comes to a disease as uncommon as ALS. I understand the difficulty of curing/treating a genetic condition. But I don’t like the notion of researching a condition being a “waste of money.” I don’t think think anything spent towards making someone’s life better is a waste of money.
