Our mission is powerful: To discover treatments and a cure for ALS, and to serve, advocate for, and empower people affected by ALS to live their lives to the fullest.
We will not rest until a cure is found.
We have a number of important programs and services available to help people living with ALS and their families cope with the day-to-day challenges that confront them.
