Most ALS patients, averaging 55 years of age, do not live beyond five years after diagnosis. Through your tax-deductible ALS donation, we can improve the quality of patients’ lives and work toward a cure.
Research in ALS, a disease where subtle things go awry at the gene or cell level, requires a great deal in the way of sophisticated technology and unusually skilled scientists. Donations through your ALS fundraising efforts, events, ALS memorial gifts and planned giving are essential to supporting accelerated ALS research being undertaken in labs all around the world. Such research is costly and government and corporate support of ALS is limited. Your help brings us closer to these important goals.
