About the Book

PRAISE FOR THE BOOK
Steve Gleason, Opening Forward
“When I think about individuals who embody a Give a Damn attitude, former NFL Saints player, Steve Gleason certainly comes to mind, and is at the top of my list. He will always be remembered for the punt he blocked against the Atlanta Falcons the night that the Superdome reopened for the first time after Hurricane Katrina. In fact, he became a symbol of the city’s resilience after such a terrible storm. A few years later, Steve was diagnosed with ALS, a terminal neuromuscular disease, otherwise known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. Gleason is determined to find a cure for ALS and also to inspire others by continuing to live his life to the fullest, despite his diagnosis.
Steve: With all the love and support that I have received from family and friends, despite my ALS diagnosis, I have been able to find a way to lead a productive and purposeful life by helping others as best I can. Despite so many challenges, I feel like I’ve been able to conquer ALS. Our foundation (Team Gleason) and the resulting philanthropic venture (Answer ALS), allows us to help others live triumphant and meaningful lives – to be fellow conquerors; instead of being forced to fade away and die a silent death. Together we (as you would say – Give A Damn) are empowering families to overcome the injustices of ALS. Most importantly, we’re taking positive steps toward our ultimate goal – Ending ALS.”
