NY Times Interview with Rebecca Luker, recently diagnosed with ALS, and “Proud I Can Still Sing”

The New York Times interviewed Rebecca Luker, a Broadway soprano, who was recently diagnosed with ALS. The performer speaks about the progression of the disease and the vulnerability that comes with sharing a voice affected by ALS. Please read the article in full, here.

As an organization dedicated to assisting people with neurodegenerative disorders by removing the barriers between them and assistive technology, Bridging Voice strives to ensure that no person with ALS is robbed of their ability to communicate.  Bridging Voice aims to relieve the mental toll that comes with this disease by assisting people at every juncture of their diagnosis. We help with communication technology training, the voice and message banking process, and securing speech generating devices among many other personalized educational and technological services.

If you or a loved one was recently diagnosed, please reach out for free support with your communication technology. We believe in the power of communication and story-sharing. We encourage our partners with ALS to share their stories and send us your testimonial today (email testimonial@bridgingvoice.org).
