Fighting ALS Through Music
Jazz musician Ned Mann was diagnosed with ALS in 1999, limiting his mobility and potentially ending his music career. After installing SmartNav on his PC, Ned and his band were able to produce Finding My Way Home, a jazz album raising money to fight ALS. Ned used his SmartNav and Pro Tools for all mixing and post production work. All proceeds from Finding My Way Home are being donated to the ALS Association, in hopes of finding treatment and an eventual cure.
