Judy Lochridge
Judy Lochridge, a nurse for 14 years, suddenly noticed that her arms weren't working like they used to. Her arms had become so weak that she began to have trouble putting in IVs or giving shots. Then one day, she had a fall, hit her face, and broke her nose. After a series of tests, Lochridge was diagnosed with ALS. To read more about Judy and other ALS survivors, read "On Borrowed Time."
