ALS Patients who have not let three letters and their diagnosis define them and how they choose to live their lives and have spend their lives helping other ALS patients.

Dr. Ayeez Lalji

Our first hero and the inspiration for ALS Heroes is Dr. Ayeez Lalji. Father of two and a devoted husband, Dr. Lalji is a self-made entrepreneur and manages 9 dental practices throughout the Greater Houston Area. He was diagnosed with ALS in November of 2017 and since then, he has been a beacon of relentless strength, resilience, faith and positivity in the face of this unbearable hardship. He remains grateful for the functions he still has and continues to live life courageously every day. He is a true inspiration to everyone he touches. Every day we are in awe by his grace and raw tenacity and resolve, his ability to keep pushing forward, and his refusal to let this disease define who he is. Thank you @ayeezlalji for being an inspiration to the entire ALS community.
