This video from Alisa Apreleva is all about an awareness campaign in Moscow, Russia, that’s helping to highlight amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).

The video features Russian recording artists and patients in various stages of the disease singing a specially written and composed song “The Last Poem.” The video was originally recorded in Moscow in 2014. Sadly, a number of the ALS patients taking part in the project have now passed away.

But their legacy, and the efforts of all who took part, will carry on. They will continue to help others understand more about the disease and to raise money for important research into better treatments, which will hopefully result in one day finding a cure.
