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.
That’s why we’re participating in the Walk to
Defeat ALS. To bring hope. To raise awareness. To provide resources and
services to families free of charge. To help unlock the mystery of ALS and find
the key to treatments a cure. Will you join us?
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.
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
