Why We Need Your Help
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
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!
