Former national striker and Reggae Boys leading goal scorer Luton Shelton now suffers from Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis.

It is a very rare nervous system disease that weakens muscles and impacts physical function.

It is a progressive neuro-degenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord.

With voluntary muscle action progressively affected, people may lose the ability to speak, eat, move and breathe.

Shelton made his international debut for Jamaica in 2004, and earned 75 caps, scoring a record 35 goals and playing at three CONCACAF Gold Cups.
