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.

As We Remember On This Memorial Day

There are thousands of Americans who have served our nation in the military who have made and will make the ultimate sacrifice long after they arrive home from their active duty.

We need to make more people aware of this troubling fact. Once you have served in the U.S. military, you are twice as likely to be diagnosed with ALS at some point in your life than the general public. Please help pass this information to legislators, military physicians, veterans organizations, and the press.

ALS is a completely unacceptable fringe benefit of U.S. military service!

  1. I do not understand why one of the most moving and meaningful tributes to veterans in the ALSA 2009 Advocacy Conference was completely abandoned in 2010. It was worthy of film, praise, and YouTube one year and wasn't repeated the next? It's not like ALS has been cured or the veterans' connection has been solved.
