Trivia

In actuality, Charlie Wedemeyer lived until June 3, 2010, when he died at age 64, or 34 years after his diagnoses, which is one of the longest survival spans for any man with ALS ever recorded, similar to the survival span of Stephen Hawking, who had an early-onset, rare slow-progressing form of ALS, dying in 2018 at age 76. Charlie Wedemeyer also had an early onset form of the disease, but was never confirmed as specifically having a similarly rare slow-progressing form of ALS. See more »
