Our Mission
To discover treatments and a cure for ALS, and to serve, advocate for, and empower people affected by ALS to live their lives to the fullest.
The Golden West Chapter supports people living with ALS and their loved ones in 31 counties throughout California and the state of Hawaii. Everything we do advances the search for effective treatments and cures for ALS.
A Note About Current Events and Systemic Racism:
Now and always, our values drive our mission, and our principles guide our vision. The Golden West Chapter rejects hate, racism, and injustice of any kind. Diversity and inclusivity are only the beginning, and we are committed to anti-racist, anti-oppression perspectives that promote equal access to ALS treatments and services.
It is only together that we will defeat ALS.
