A Man Suffering From ALS Created His Own Ice Bucket Challenge Video And It’s Amazing

A native Texan and father reminded us what the cause is really for.

1. Although father David McClain has been a victim of Lou Gehrig’s Disease for 12 years, he still maintains a positive outlook on life and volunteered to participate in the challenge.

The disease has paralyzed McClain from the shoulders down, and taken away his ability to speak. However, he still explains the disease and who he chose to pass the challenge onto through the speech synthesizer he uses to communicate.

2. He asked all his Facebook friends to not only “take the ice bucket plunge but I also challenge you to make a donation of what you can to the ALS association.”

3. In true Texas fashion, he completed the challenge with Texas-shaped ice.

You can also donate to David McClain and his foundation here.
