New date for CNN report on ALS featuring Augie

There have been some amazing strides in the fight to find a cure for ALS - also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease. Many of those accomplishments have been chronicled right here as one of our own, Augie Nieto, has been battling the debilitating affliction for eight years.

This week, July 24-26 (rescheduled from July 1-3), at 1:30 p.m. EST, CNN will be shedding new light on how families deal with a relative with ALS. Among those being profiled is Augie, the co-founder of Life Fitness, whose segment is expected to air on Friday.

One of Augie's most recent accomplishments was his workout at the 2013 IHRSA International Convention & Trade Show in Las Vegas in March.

Dr. Sanjay Gupta will look into the medical resources available for ALS, as well as research into the disease.
