Bruce Kramer lived a remarkably rich life because of – not despite – an incurable, always fatal disease: Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, or Lou Gehrig’s Disease. He was diagnosed with ALS December 6, 2010. While the disease diminished his body, it expanded his life and spirit. He shared that experience with Minnesota Public Radio News host Cathy Wurzer over nearly five year of conversations.

Tough but inspiring


Amazing Wisdom

I followed Bruce's story for years as it was aired live. I'm so glad it will be here for others to learn from. I was always floored by this man's wisdom, and I know I will be coming back to this again and again for lessons that I need to learn in my life, regardless of whether I am facing my own death. What a beautiful legacy for an amazing soul, to be able to offer so much comfort and guidance to others. Thanks to Bruce and his family for their generosity, and to Cathy Wurzer and my beloved Minnesota Public Radio for having the courage to do this story.
