ALS Ice Bucket Challenge Soaks Rockford Spine Center
Our beloved patient Mark, who has been diagnosed with ALS, challenged Dr. Marie Walker and Cindy Nyquist to the ALS ice bucket challenge. They happily accepted the challenge - and the sequence of ice water dumping began. Check out the below videos featuring Dr. Fred Sweet and several members of the RSC team. We think this is a great cause and promotes awareness for a devastating disease!

Dr. Marie Walker discussed ALS and its prevalence in Northern Illinois on WTVO-TV and WIFR-TV. Rockford appears to have a concentration of cases higher than most areas.
