About Our Chapter
The Arizona Chapter was founded in 1991 to serve the needs of those living with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and their caregivers.
The ALS Association Arizona Chapter is dedicated to serving and empowering people living with ALS and their families. We provide free support, resources, and education to Arizonans impacted by ALS, allowing them to endure their diagnosis with dignity, quality of life, and hope for a world without ALS. Through family-centered care initiatives, we assess individual needs in terms of disease progression and equipment and resource needs. We invite families living with ALS into a community of supportive peers, ensuring them that they are not alone. ALS is a devastating, expensive disease that robs individuals of the ability to walk, speak, eat, and eventually breathe. Your support directly impacts daily life for people facing this struggle, aids in the search for a cure, and gives the gift of hope to all people affected by ALS.
The ALS Association covers all the bases — research, patient and community services, public education, and advocacy — in providing help and hope to those facing the disease.
