Subject: Introducing Dick Spierings StopALS.Nu
Dick is the name and I am a Member of the foundation (, a Dutch foundation with website and forum about ALS, also known as Lou Gerhig disease.

We have a very active forum with lots of patient information and now have plans for an ALS wiki on our site. Purpose is to collect practical information for patients, caretakers and research institutes, because sofar nothing else exists in that area! (only scientifical stuff)

I am 47, tech. writer by profession and diagnosed with the disease. So I am unable to work full time. On my personal website I have installed the  'Adora Belle' to play with and learn from before we do the real work on our foundation website.

You can find my playgroud on (Dutch).

That's it! :-)
Have a nice day!

Hi Dick,

you are welcome at the DokuWiki community and forum. A lot of information is provided within the and thousands of threads are in the forum. Sometimes it does not help and therefore many users and the core developers are here to help.

Have fun with DokuWiki and its various plugins.
best regards

Hi Dick, welcome to the forums. I hadn't heard about ALS before, but looked it up in Wikipedia. I'm sorry to learn that there isn't a cure, yet. I hope DokuWiki can help to make living with ALS a bit better and raise awareness about the disease.
Read this if you don't get any useful answers.

Lou Gehrig was one of baseball's greatest players.  He played first base for the New York Yankees and held many records.  He had to retire from baseball because of ALS.
