Everyday Heroes | Professor Michael Goldsmith

The man who inspired the project deserves at least a full post of his own.

An entire wall in his home office is host to "Professor of the Year" awards, each given by the law students at BYU. His sheer intelligence coupled with uncanny wit and charm have made him an easy favorite.

Professor Goldsmith's "can do" attitude has recently reached far beyond the classroom. He has single-handedly led a movement throughout the country that will benefit only those ALS victims who come after him. Though now confined to communicating through this computer, Professor Goldsmith's vocal efforts have paved the way for bounds of improvement in ALS research.

Below are various news stories and reports about his journey through his battle with ALS and his fight to help others.
