Living While Dying: An ALS Story

Living While Dying: An ALS Story

Minnesota Public Radio

Bruce Kramer lived a remarkably rich life because of – not despite – an incurable, always fatal disease: Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, or Lou Gehrig’s Disease. He was diagnosed with ALS December 6, 2010. While the disease diminished his body, it expanded his life and spirit. He shared that experience with Minnesota Public Radio News host Cathy Wurzer over nearly five year of conversations.

Listen to the last episode:

Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter Anna Schulze was so touched by the "Living While Dying" series that she wrote "Don't You Fade Away," featured on her new album "Pickford Market."
