My ALS Journey™

ALS follows no predictable path and adheres to no set timeline. Planning ahead helps to alleviate some of the chaos of change, but how do you know what to plan for or what questions to ask? My ALS Journey™ is an interactive, web-based tool that allows people living with ALS to take control of their journey with the disease.
