ALS doesn't define who you are. It's just part of your life story.
View the videos of others PALS who believe the same and are rewriting their own ending. And send us an e-mail if you believe you have one for us to feature, as well.
A 3-time James Beard Award nominee, Chef Gerry Hayden was diagnosed with ALS in December of 2010. Since that time, he has continued to work at The North Fork Table & Inn, the Long Island restaurant that he owns with his wife and fellow chef, Claudia Fleming. He has dedicated himself to using his vast network of fellow chefs and the rest of the food community to raise funds for ALS research and patient care, especially for those less fortunate.
