In addition, this year the organization of the fair wanted to give visibility to the social and socio-health reality of this pathology of the central nervous system, characterized by a progressive degeneration of motor neurons.
Its main clinical feature is muscle weakness that progresses to paralysis, extending from one body region to another;
so that the disappearance of motor neurons results in neurodegeneration and muscular atrophy.
Gradually, patients begin to have problems in functions as basic as walking, eating, talking or getting out of bed.
And they are totally aware of their disease, their intellectual capacity remains intact.
The promoters of the fair encouraged beer and rock music lovers to attend this cultural event that was born last year with a vocation to give continuity over time;
and that will be officially opened on Friday, starting at 8:00 p.m.
