Our goal is to improve the quality of life for those living with ALS.

We at the ALS Foundation for Life are optimistic for the day when a cure or prevention for ALS is discovered, but are equally aware that we cannot sit back idly waiting for scientific research and FDA approvals. It is our goal to do whatever we can to ease the physical, emotional, and financial burdens that accompany this diagnosis for the men and women in our community who are forced to battle this disease on a daily basis.
