Biography

Eric Valor had just turned 36 when he was diagnosed with ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis or Lou Gehrigs disease). Before this time, he was an avid surfer, snowboarder and scuba diver as well as self-taught Information Technology professional with a career of nearly 20 years. The continued advance of ALS led to his early retirement by February 2008. In July of 2008, Eric suffered a pulmonary event that required a tracheotomy and the permanent use of a ventilator. By this time he had also lost his ability to eat and was fed through a tube to his stomach. You can learn more by reading his “My History With ALS”.
