(CNN) - On Steve Saling's 37th birthday, the pencil he was holding inexplicably fell out of his hand.
"It was a very peculiar moment," Saling said. "It felt like my hand fell asleep, but there was no reason it should have."
Saling, who was visiting his grandmother in her nursing home, never expected that he would soon have to look for a care facility of his own.
He was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also known as ALS or Lou Gehrig's disease, a year after he noticed the strange sensation in his hand. It was October 2006, his 38th birthday and just one month after the birth of his son, Finn. He was working as a landscape architect at a top design firm in Boston.

"From the beginning, I was determined to live another 38 years," Saling said.
