Working to Provide a Better Quality of Life for the ALS Community
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.
To date, we have raised and given over $400,000, all of which has gone to assist ALS patients and their families with medical and quality of life expenses. Check out the Our Stories page to find out more about the kinds of things we help ALS patients with. We are dedicated to continuing the mission of reaching as many ALS patients as possible. We want to thank all of you who support our mission by making donations or volunteering your time. Together we can make a difference.
We are an all volunteer-operated 501 (c) (3) organization celebrating its eleventh year working to provide support to ALS patients.
