Itazura na Kiss ~Love in Tokyo~ actor, Furukawa Yuki, was nominated by Yoshitaka Hori, the president of his agency, Horipro, to do the "ice bucket challenge" for a charity on Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis or ALS.
The Japan ALS Association has opened a charity to help people suffering in ALS by either donating $100 or suffering an ice bucket challenge.
Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis or ALS, often referred to as "Lou Gehrig's Disease," is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Motor neurons reach from the brain to the spinal cord and from the spinal cord to the muscles throughout the body. The progressive degeneration of the motor neurons in ALS eventually leads to their death. When the motor neurons die, the ability of the brain to initiate and control muscle movement is lost. With voluntary muscle action progressively affected, patients in the later stages of the disease may become totally paralyzed. (ALSA)
