Florida is leading the country for the amount of clinical trials listed on clinicaltrials.gov. No other state has as many recruiting ALS projects; several clinics in the state are searching for better treatments and a potential cure. This gives people with ALS plenty of opportunities to make a difference in research - join a trial today!

ALS Support Groups
Dealing with ALS is physically, emotionally and financially devastating. ALS Support Groups provide a caring, supportive, and open environment for people to gather, connect, and talk with one another. These groups are open to people living with ALS, their families, caregivers and friends. They provide everyone with opportunities to establish a network of valuable resources and sustained support. Our Chapter Regional Program Managers facilitate each meeting and will have speakers on relevant topics combined with time for attendees to share information and provide feedback to one another.
The ALS Association Florida Chapter Events
Our Chapter and third-party hosted events provide opportunities to #ChallengeALS: from raising awareness of ALS, to fundraising for our Chapter to support our services, these opportunities allow us to gather, connect, and fight ALS together.
Donate Equipment to The ALS Association Florida Chapter!
The ALS Association Florida Chapter greatly appreciates donations of durable medical equipment (DME), respiratory equipment, and communication devices for use in our Equipment Loan Program. The Program offers temporary loaner equipment, including speech generating devices, to Florida residents with a verified diagnosis of ALS who are uninsured, underinsured, who cannot access their insurance (while in a nursing home or hospice) or who are waiting for insurance approval.
For equipment donations, please contact 888.257.1717 ext. 113.
We will provide an acknowledgment letter to each donor for tax purposes once the donation is picked up by the DME companies that store and maintain our equipment throughout the state, Ability Medical and NuMotion.
Ability Medical and Numotion donate their time and services to help us fulfill our Equipment Loan Program, providing temporary loaner equipment to Florida residents in need with a verified diagnosis of ALS. For more information about our Program, click here.
