Stephen Hawking's Life changing Ob.

(Ob. stands for Obstacle. It wont totally fit on the title)

This article is about Stephen Hawking who is trying to overcome a life changing obstacle.

Stephen Hawking is an amazing person. He is a world-renewed British theoretical physicist and loves science. He was born in Oxford, witch is in United Kingdom, on January 8, 1942. He was a bright kid growing up. When he was 21, he started to get ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), also known as Lou Gehrig's disease. ALS causes nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord to weaken and eventually die. When he went to the doctors, they said that he only had two more years to live. He didn't pass away yet but the disease has made it so Stephen couldn't walk or talk. He has this special wheel chair so he could talk and move around. He's still alive till this date and is still trying to overcome his obstacle. The technology we have today is seriously helping him through his very tough journey.

Memorable quote:

"I try to lead as normal a life as possible, and not think about my condition, or regret the things it prevents me from doing, which are not that many."
