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.

Lou Who?

Ask a Little Leaguer or a high school first baseman about Lou Gehrig, and you may get a, "Lou Who?" response. It has been a long time since Lou starred for the Yankees.

We must not let his memory fade away. He is the only reason that ALS has a name and a fate that people remember.

ALSTDI has a program to keep Lou's memory alive through July 4 events. The concept is so simple that it just may work!

Please fire up the grill and ice down some cold ones (in memory of Babe) and have a 4 ALS barbeque that will keep the memory of Lou Gehrig alive. Please click the link and plan a July 4 that will be fun and will do some good, too.

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., May 18 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The ALS Therapy Development Institute (ALS TDI) announced its BBQ For ALS Awareness, is a national initiative designed to increase the awareness and understanding of ALS
(amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), otherwise known as Lou Gehrig's disease. To accomplish its goal, the campaign brings together three undoubtedly American activities on July 4th, 2009 -- an Independence Day celebration, the traditional summer barbecue (BBQ), and America's pastime -- baseball.
