Elja Bagaco was diagnosed with ALS in January 2017 and the disease has quickly progressed. Since then, she has required a G-tube and then had a respiratory arrest in November. She now has a trach and on a vent. The family desperately wanted to get her home requiring a 24/7 nursing care. She is now being lovely cared for at home.
