For the Glass family at Silkscreen Unlimited, the ice bucket challenge that has been sweeping the nation takes on much deeper significance.
In December of 2012, Roy Glass was diagnosed with ALS.
“You don't really believe that it could be happening,” said Roy's daughter Lindsey Glass. “The disease just sort of takes hold, and it's a rampant decline.”
After a 10 month battle with the devastating disease, Glass passed away.
"ALS sort of becomes another family member,” said Lindsey. “It's something you continually talk about. It's brought up every single day. You focus on it every single day, because you want to do everything you can to make his life better, even though you know what the outcome is going to be."
Glass' family and fellow employees helped raise $1,500 in his honor, which will be donated to the Western PA Chapter of the ALS Association.
"One thing we would like to say, is when you are doing the ice bucket challenge you should be aware of the disease,” said Lindsey. “You understand where the funding is going and it would be great if it goes to you community chapter."
