ALS Advocacy

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.

The Road To A Cure Is Paved With Email

The following call to action was pasted from from an ALS Association Washington, DC office communication received today:

Thank you to everyone who contacted their Senators during our virtual Advocacy Day. Your outreach has led many Senators to support the Casey-Snowe Dear Colleague letter calling for $10 million in funding for the ALS Research Program (ALSRP) at the Department of Defense. But more can be done!

Senators Casey and Snowe have extended the deadline for signing on to the letter until Friday, May 15. Therefore, we urge everyone to continue to contact their Senators and ask them to sign-on to this critical letter, which can make the difference in continuing funding for the ALSRP next year.

Even if you already have contacted your Senators, please do so again. For those who joined us in Washington this week and met personally with your Senators and staff, we encourage you to also send an email to them today. Use the Advocacy Action Center to reinforce the messages you delivered in your meetings. Tell your
Senators to sign the Casey-Snowe Dear Colleague and support our heroes who have served in the military and everyone whose life has been impacted by
ALS.

Go to the
Advocacy Action Center to send your letter TODAY. The deadline for Senators to sign-on is now Friday, May 15.
