PLEASE NOTE: An earlier version of this story shared the false report that Frates passed away this morning. We regret and apologize for the error.
We encourage the BC Interruption community to make a donation to the ALS Association:

Frates’ fundraising and awareness efforts have brought in over $100 million for ALS research, and have contributed to a significant genetic discovery as researchers look to tackle this terrible disease.
