About Us

In a Nutshell
Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (also known as ALS, Lou Gehrig’s disease
Our Organization

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (also known as ALS, Lou Gehrig’s disease, or motor neuron disease) is a disease that gradually paralyzes people because the brain is no longer able to communicate with the muscles of the body that we are typically able to move at will. Over time, as the muscles of the body break down, someone living with ALS will lose the ability to walk, talk, eat, swallow, and eventually breathe. Learn more about the early signs and symptoms, how ALS is diagnosed and how it progresses. If you or someone you know is living with ALS, take advantage of our resources to help make day-to-day life with ALS less overwhelming and more manageable.
