ALS Advocacy
Lou Gehrig's Disease - Motor Neuron Disease - Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis
Thought it had been cured by now? Still no known cause. Still no cure. Still quickly fatal. Still outrageous.

Circle Your Wagons for the Next Congress

If we're unable to get the Senate to vote on The Advancing America's Priorities Act or to get Coburn to release The ALS Registry Act from his talons' hold before the end of 2008, we might as well start lining up some friends to the cause when we have to start from scratch in the next Congress. Please check out Politico's list of hotly contested races below. If you are from one of those states and one of those people has been a friend to the ALS cause in the past, please consider voting for him or her. If one of those people has not been helpful, please consider the alternative. We need for our legislators to know that there are career consequences to having deaf ears when it comes to ALS. Here are some close races where every hanging chad will be important.
