The 11-year-old son with big brown eyes who once cuddled on her lap now hardly comes near her. Angie Bloomquist was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis less than two years ago. "It's like a tornado ripped through our home," Angie says. She speaks through a special computer that tracks her eye movement, a painstaking task that exhausts her after a few sentences.
