What Is ALS?
Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive, fatal neuromuscular disease characterized by a degeneration of motor nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord. The disease attacks the part of the nervous system that controls voluntary muscle movement. The nerve cells that control muscle cells are gradually lost.
A diagnosis of ALS is one of the worst things that can happen to a person. It ultimately robs those affected of every physical activity and can make every breath a struggle. The victims virtually become prisoners in their own bodies. There is no cure and no known cause for this terminal disease. As we know all too well, when one family member is diagnosed with ALS, they all live it.
What Does A.L.S. Family Charitable Foundation Do?
Our Foundation helps in ways that ALS families really need. We help keep the lights and heat on for the family; we help send children of our patients to college; we make sure that caregivers are able to take time to take care of themselves; we help families take what often times is their last vacation together to make some wonderful memories; we take away the fear of not having enough resources to make the holidays joyous and back to school shopping fun; and so much more.
After registration, the Foundation will be reaching out to each person with further information.
