Default Rasheda Ali, has joined forces with an Israeli biotech firm

Muhammad Aliís Other Fight

The Jewish Daily Forward
Wed. Oct 17, 2007

World champion boxer Muhammad Ali was diagnosed with Parkinsonís disease in 1982, and now his daughter, Rasheda Ali, has joined forces with an Israeli biotech firm that specializes in adult stem-cell research to find cures for neurodegenerative diseases.

The younger Ali signed on as official spokeswoman and advisory board member for BrainStorm Cell Therapeutics, which recently announced advancements in its search for a cure for Parkinsonís disease.

An outspoken advocate in raising awareness and encouraging dialogue about the neurological disorder, she is the author of the 2005 childrenís book ďIíll Hold Your Hand So You Wonít Fall,Ē published by Merit Publishing International. The book provides families with guidance in discussing and understanding the disease.
You're alive. Do something. The directive in life, the moral imperative was so uncomplicated. It could be expressed in single words, not complete sentences. It sounded like this: Look. Listen. Choose. Act. ~~Barbara Hall

I long to accomplish a great and noble tasks, but it is my chief duty to accomplish humble tasks as though they were great and noble. The world is moved along, not only by the mighty shoves of its heroes, but also by the aggregate of the tiny pushes of each honest worker. ~~Helen Keller
