Working to Provide a Better Quality of Life for the ALS Community
Thanks to the Ice Bucket Challenge, over $50,000 has been donated to the ALS Foundation for Life over the past few weeks. We would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to all the donors who chose to contribute to our mission, and also helped raise awareness about amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.
Remember yesterday and hope for tomorrow, but live for today.
We at the ALS Foundation for Life are optimistic for the day when a cure or prevention for ALS is discovered and introduced into society, but are equally aware that we cannot sit back idly awaiting scientific research and FDA approvals. With an estimated 30,000 Americans currently suffering from this disease, and an estimated 5,000 others diagnosed each year, we must take it upon ourselves to do whatever we can to ease the physical, emotional, and financial burdens that accompany this diagnosis. It is our goal to raise public awareness and to help improve the quality of life for the men and women in our community who are forced to battle this plague on a daily basis.
We are an all volunteer-operated 501 (c) (3) organization celebrating its eleventh year working to provide support to ALS patients.
