Steve Dezember was only 28 when he was diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). At that time, his girlfriend, Hope Cross, then 26, vowed to stick by him despite doctors anticipating a life expectancy of two to five difficult years. However, Steve defied expectations and, eight years later, hopes he’ll still be here when a cure is found.
