In my estimation, it's the worst disease on the planet and quite possibly the scariest. I know ebola is pretty frightening, but that kills you fairly quickly. If one does live with this dreaded disease, then they're remanded to a wheelchair and totally lose their ability to speak. Look no further than Jason Becker, Stephen Hawking or Steve Gleason.

I feel very sorry for him...

Terrible news. My friend's dad suffered from it. It was very sad watching him slowly deteriorate from it and eventually losing his life. Such a terrible disease.

I was too old for Spongebob, but my son seems to like it.

I recently watched an entire episode with him, and it seems like a witty show for the whole family. There are some jokes that the younger ones surely won't understand, but there's also obviously plenty of non-stop action and entertainment for even toddlers.

My brother also watched it as a kid. He was born in '94. Must be a long running show.

I don't know this person who created it, but I am assuming he is financially in a position to have the best possible care taken.

Nonetheless, it's a tough thing to happen to you, no matter who you are. It's almost like knowing the day you will die.
