VT-member PALS - Fred Siwak - suffers from ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) - also known as Lou Gehrig's disease and MND (motor neuron disease). His progressive disease means he's unable to travel - but he has started a project to have his art photographed in every country of the world. In this pic you can see his puffins photographed in Tromsø, Norway. Visit PALS VT-homepage to read more about his project - maybe you can help him fulfill his dream?
