To date, there is no cure or effective treatment for ALS.
As well as the devastating physical effects of the disease, the emotional impact on everyone involved is, of course, unspeakable.
That’s where the ALS Association also do their remarkable work, away from the research labs – their care services.
For Melissa and her family, that meant attentive and compassionate support from the ALS Association. They provided resources and information with a sensitive, discerning approach. When it was appropriate, they provided the proper equipment, along with guidance for its use. When specialist technology was needed, the ALS Association provided the expert help.
Today, their goal is to make ALS a livable disease, and to empower those affected to live life to the fullest. Wile they work to find a treatment and a cure, they never forget those who are currently affected, and they are focused on improving the lives of people living with ALS and their caregivers.
Here’s a short video on that vital goal.
