Often referred to as Lou Gehrig's Disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive, fatal neuromuscular disease that slowly robs the body of its ability to walk, speak, swallow and breathe, with your mind being completely intact. The life expectancy of an ALS patient averages 2 to 5 years from the time of diagnosis.
Presently there is no known cause of the disease, nor is there no known cure, yet it still costs loved ones an average of $200,000 or more a year to provide the care ALS patients need.
We truly appreicate your support! Thank you so very much!
