Former Gov. Paul Cellucci talked to “Greater Boston” host Emily Rooney about his fight against amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), and his campaign to raise money for the UMass/ALS Champion Fund, which supports research at UMass Medical School and UMass Memorial Medical Center. The interview on the WGBH news show was taped on campus on Monday, Jan. 23.
"I feel terrific," Cellucci said. "Not a lot has changed. My arms and legs have gotten a little weaker but everything else is OK. I continue to do my work every day."
Governor Cellucci, who announced last year that he had been diagnosed with ALS, is under the care of Robert H. Brown Jr., DPhil, MD, chair and professor of neurology, and one of the world’s leading ALS researchers. Money from the UMass/ALS Champion Fund will go directly to Dr. Brown’s lab.
