People living with ALS and their families remain desperate for champions to step up — to sustain and grow the day-to-day services they rely on, to bring innovation through assistive technology, to fund life-prolonging treatments, and ultimately, to find a cure for this devastating disease.

Please give generously this year-end to bring both help and hope to people facing this ravaging disease. Click here to give.

Since 1984, the Central & Southern Ohio Chapter has supported people living with ALS and their loved ones through services and education. We leave no stone unturned in search for the cure of this progressive neurodegenerative disease.
