Ice Bucket Challenge Helps Fund Breakthrough in ALS Research!

Remember the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge that made waves two years ago? Well, money donated through raising awareness has contributed to a major scientific breakthrough!

University of Massachusetts Medical School’s Project MinE was able to discover a new gene after the ALS Association donated $1 million dollars from the Ice Bucket Challenge.

The gene has been identified as NEK1. Scientists are hoping the gene could provide clues and answers for potential treatment and understanding of the horrible disease.

“The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge enabled us to secure funding from new sources in new parts of the world,” Bernard Muller, founder of Project MinE and ALS patient, said in a statement (via NYDN). “This transatlantic collaboration supports our global gene hunt to identify the genetic drivers of ALS.”

“Well, I just went to San Diego and to give my pregnant sister a break. I took care of my niece, nephew and my daughter. To bathe them all three, feed them, get them in the pajamas and down for bed I was literally like crying. It was so hard. Three kids. I don’t know how my mom did it with six. So it was really, really hard so I’ll go for two but then again I have so many siblings and I love it. They’re my best friends. I would want that for my kids. So I’m going to do two and see how it is,” Kim shared on the show about having future kids with husband Kanye West.
