Lou Gehrig, baseball star, victim of ALS
"Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis" is a degenerative disease with no known cause and no known cure. It leaves the sufferer without the use of arms, legs - and even lungs - and kills most people within 3-5 years from the onset of symptoms. Lou Gehrig and Professor Stephen Hawking are well-known suffers of this terrible disease and thus, it's often referred to as "Lou Gehrig's Disease".

Imagine being fully mentally aware, but without the ability to perform even the most mundane task for yourself. Walking, eating, dressing - and for many, even breathing - become impossible tasks.

Through your love, support and generosity, we hope to completely remove this dreadful disease from the human experience. Please look through this site as we share the stories of so many brave individuals and the families and friends that love them.

If you're an ALS suffer, may these pages offer hope and resources. If you're the family member or friend of someone with this disease, may you find comfort and solace. If you're a concerned and curious individual, may you find answers.

We wish this for you.
