Thank you for helping us reach our fund raising goal! Together we can help find a cure for ALS and all its offshoots. I happen to have PLS which is an offshoot of ALS. While it’s not fatal like ALS you do get all the symptoms and degenerate issues that come with ALS.
Any donation can help us get a little closer to finding a reason why we get it, how to treat it and maybe one day how to cure it .
Why We Need Your Help
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive, fatal neuromuscular disease that slowly robs the body of its ability to walk, speak, swallow and breathe. The life expectancy of a person with ALS averages 2 to 5 years from the time of diagnosis.
Every 90 minutes a person in this country is diagnosed with ALS and every 90 minutes another person will lose their battle against this disease. ALS occurs throughout the world with no racial, ethnic, or socioeconomic boundaries.
ALS can strike anyone. Presently there is no known cause of the disease, yet it still costs loved ones an average of $250,000 a year to provide the care people living with ALS and their families need. Join the movement to provide help and hope today!
