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.

Do You Think We Can Get An Appointment For Advocacy Day???

Once again, it's a small world, and a Jill Biden staffer certainly understands ALS.

From the change.gov newsroom...

  1. I emailed the whitehouse.gov site every year before Advocacy Day and never got so much as a polite form letter back. I hope that changes with the new administration. They need to show an interest in ALS, especially with the number of soldiers who may be dealing with it in the next eight years.
