What Is ALS?

ALS Can Affect Anyone,
Anywhere, at Any Age

ALS (otherwise known as Lou Gehrig’s disease) is always fatal and patients typically live for 2 to 5 years after diagnosis.  More than 90% of people with ALS have no family history of the disease.  1 in 300 people will receive an ALS diagnosis in their lifetime.  And yet, despite these tragic statistics, there is no cure and the search for meaningful treatments has been frustratingly slow at best.
