Stephen Hawking has ALS, otherwise known as Lou Gehrig's disease, it is a disabling muscle wasting disease.
the disease that tephen hawking had was ALS
He was born with this disease
Stephen Hawking suffers from a progressive motor neuron disorder similar to ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease) which was diagnosed about age 21, and has slowly paralyzed him over a period of several decades, largely confining him to a wheelchair.
Stephen Hawking was born in 1942; as of this writing (2014) he is 72.
The symptoms started to become significant, and Stephen Hawking received his diagnosis, when he was 21 years of age.
Stephen Hawking was diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease.
Lou Gehrig's disease
In 1963, Hawking contracted motor neurone disease and was given two years to live.
Stephen Hawking suffers from the a motor neuron disease known as amytrophic lateral sclerosis, or Lou Gehrig's disease. For Hawking it has progressed to the point of paralysis. He is unable to speak and communicates using a speech generating device.
Stephen Hawking slowly became paralyzed and confined to a wheelchair because of a motor neuron disease similar to ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease).
Yes, Stephen Hawking was alive through all of 2013 (age 71).
Stephen Hawking has a condition called Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis also known as Lou Gehrig's disease.
Lou Gehrig disease
Stephen Hawking was diagnosed with ALS at the age of 21. The disease made him partly paralyzed and he had to be in a wheelchair. He could barely move and it became worse after time. Doctors said he had only 2 years to live, but he has now lived to the age of 70.
Stephen Hawking has a disease called neuro-muscular dystrophy which unfortunately leaves him completely paralyzed. Do to this Mr. Hawking eats through a feeding tube.
Professor Stephen Hawking is unable to walk, due to the effects of ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease) a motor neuron disease which requires him to remain confined to a wheelchair.
Illness at a young age
Stephen Hawking suffers from a progressive motor neuron disease like ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or Lou Gehrig's disease), which has progressed over the years and left him almost entirely paralyzed.
Stephen Hawking is an English theoretical physicist and and cosmologist. He has amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ASL, also known as "Lou Gehrig's Disease." Stephen Hawking can no longer speak and relies on a voice synthesizer to "talk" for him.
He was Diagnosed with MND (motor neurone disease) a disease which destroys your motor neurones which control your movement. Now Stephen Hawking speaks through a computer after having a tracheotomy fitted.
Professor Hawking has a motor neurone disease related to Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS).
Stephen Hawking became increasingly paralyzed and confined to a wheelchair over 5 decades, beginning around age 21 when he was diagnosed with a progressive motor neuron disorder similar to ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease).
