When star New Orleans Saints player Steve Gleason was diagnosed with the debilitating disease ALS in 2011, he began recording a video diary for his unborn son. That footage, showcasing the slow decline of the athlete’s motor skills, forms the emotional core of the new documentary “Gleason,” which opens in select theaters on Friday.  

The Huffington Post and its parent company, AOL, have a joint exclusive clip from the film in which Gleason records a hopeful diary entry. It’s a snapshot of this powerful movie, which traces Gleason’s resilience in the face of his heartbreaking condition.
