|Despite 21plus million people dying from ALS since 1869, there hasn’t been any significant improvement in the treatment or cure of this disease.
Jon and ALS patients, pALS everywhere are basically offered the same treatment options as Lou Gehrig in 1939. Without raising awareness and funding,
ALS will not receive the research efforts necessary to find a meaningful treatment and cure, and ALS will continue to strike down every person who is diagnosed.
To date there are no survivors...

"People do not follow titles, they follow courage. If you will just lead them onto the battlefield,
they will follow you and so will I, unite us... unite the clans." - Braveheart
