Thought it had been cured by now? Still no known cause. Still no cure. Still quickly fatal. Still outrageous.

We Hope And We Pray

Over the last two decades there have been hundreds of clinical trials for ALS drugs that have delivered nothing but disappointment. We continue to raise funds and awareness so that research may continue.

Over the last several weeks there have been early reports of some positive results. It's way to early to know if early reports mean anything, but it is a most encouraging buzz among some of the trial participants.

If you have ALS or if you know someone with ALS, this Neuraltus NP001 trial might be worth some serious consideration. One must be within 36 months of disease onset to be eligible. If travel is required to get to a trial site, we understand that there is some assistance available.

We hope and we pray that this portends a viable treatment for ALS that can be delivered quickly. Around 500 Americans with ALS die every month.
