ALS Has Shortened, But Not Stopped Killion’s Workday

Rolin Killion’s work days at his business, Killion’s Auto Service, are not as long as they once were. Suffering from ALS, the Okawville resident better known as Rocky has forgone the 11 hour days that were his normal routine.

The 66 year old still comes to the shop daily. Killion works a little on vehicles, but mostly does the book work and manages the business he started in 1982. His sons, Bryon and Eric and part-time employee Josh Madrid do the repairs.

Killion’s journey into ALS, better known as “Lou Gehrig’s Disease”, started last spring. His speech changed and he had difficulty swallowing. That was caused by his face muscles weakening.
His wife, Kathy, suspected a stroke.

    My first symptoms of ALS occurred in 2011, but was diagnosed in 2013. I had severe symptoms ranging from shortness of breath, balance problems, couldn’t walk without a walker or a power chair, i had difficulty swallowing and fatigue. I was given medications which helped but only for a short burst of time, then i decided to try alternative measures and began on ALS Formula treatment from Akanni herbal centre , It has made a tremendous difference for me (Visit www. akanniherbalcentre .com). I had improved walking balance, increased appetite, muscle strength, improved eyesight and others.
