The Bold and the Beautiful Star Don Diamont Supports ALS Research – Soap Hub

As a member of the daytime community for many years, Don Diamont has seen soaps tackle important social issues. Now, the star of The Bold and the Beautiful is lending his name to a topical and vital concern.

The actor was invited recently to speak at the annual ISSCR (International Society for Stem Cell Research Conference) in Los Angeles. He accepted to show his support for a dear pal, who is battling ALS.

I was touched, and humbled to be asked to speak for, and about my beloved friend Nanci Ryder at this years ISSCR Conference, Diamont posted on his Instagram account. The event is the largest gathering of stem cell scientists and clinicians in the world. Nancis story is a powerful one, and I was honored to have an opportunity to share it with those on the front lines in the battle to find a cure for ALS.

Yesterday, at The Walk to Defeat ALS, I was with Nanci and the group of wonderful souls that make up TEAM NANCI, Diamont continued. Thank you to the @alsagoldenwest chapter for all that you do! Thank you to Dr. Justin Ichida! Justin is the Assistant Professor of Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine at the Keck School of Medicine USC. Hes making significant strides in moving toward a cure for ALS. Finally, to anybody out there whos helping in any way to fight the good fight in eliminating this horrible illness, thank you!

Diamont concluded his post with words of encouragement for his friend: Nanci, you are the bravest of the brave! I, and we LOVE YOU

Soap fans may recall that the late Michael Zaslow (ex-Roger, Guiding Light; ex-David, One Life to Live) had been diagnosed with the disease. He passed away in 1998. For more information on ALS, click here. The Bold and the Beautiful airs weekdays on CBS. Check local listings for air times.
