In 2014 a tough-as-nails woman named Angie Wall was sentenced to a life supported by a ventilator and a wheelchair for a terrible disease with no cure or treatment—ALS. Angie resisted the torture of the disease for more than four years before escaping from its steely grip to heaven Nov. 1, 2018. Today, her mortal body is not here, but Angie's warrior spirit lives on in all of us. If you know the problem, if you can help, and if you have it in your heart to make a difference, maybe you can join the A-Team in our Walk to Defeat ALS®, or choose a team member from the list and donate to our cause.
Pity the Full that doesn't sing the song ... duh-dun-duh-dun-dun-duh.
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!
