Synopsis

New Orleans Saints defensive back Steve Gleason was diagnosed with ALS at the age of 34 and given two to five years to live. When his wife found out weeks later that she was expecting their first child, Gleason started a video journal that began as a message to his unborn child but became a chronicle of his journey to help other ALS patients through the creation of a foundation and his commitment to adapt to his deteriorating physical condition to live as fully as possible.
