Showing the world that Virginia Beach is waging a fight of its own against ALS and other neurological diseases. Nobody enjoys the beach more than Josh Thompson. He was an avid surfer. He loved taking his family to the beach. He grew up on the beach and thought he'd be riding his board for years to come. But in late 2006, Josh was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, better known as ALS or Lou Gehrig's disease. Josh had to turn his attention from riding waves to fighting ALS, a battle few so young have to face.
