Still active 30 years after ALS diagnosis

Joyce Brown was diagnosed with ALS in 1988 when she was 54 years old. It is 30 years later and she is now 84 years young. Joyce was in Salt Lake City recently giving a speech on suicide prevention. Joyce had a near-death experience many years ago, so knows first-hand that suicide is not the answer. We recorded her speech.

Way to go Joyce, congratulations for being active well into your 80’s and still going strong!

For all of us, whether diagnosed with ALS or not, having purpose in life is essential to a truly fulfilling life. Because of her near-dealth experience, Joyce believes God granted her a long life in part to spread the message that suicide is not an answer to life’s problems. She also shares her message through her website and book, which are below.

Imagine if each one of us did our small part in making the world a better place, think of how different the planet earth would be! 

Joyce’s purpose also includes sharing her story about healing from ALS. Joyce is also participating in our upcoming Healing ALS book and docuseries, which will be coming out out late 2018 or early 2019 as long as we get the remaining funding we need to finish it. Please click the “Donate” button at right if you would like to assist in finishing the Healing ALS project.
