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.

Urgent Action Is Requested Regarding DOD ALS Research Program

Following is from an email from the ALS Association:

Congress is proposing to eliminate the ALS Research Program (ALSRP) at the Department of Defense. They are proposing to take millions in funding away from a program that was specifically created to find a treatment for ALS, a program that has invested nearly $18 million for ALS research in just the past three years. We need your help today to save the ALSRP! Please contact your Senators and Representative and urge them to continue funding for this vital program. Tell Congress that they need to stop ALS, not the funding that is so urgently needed to find a treatment. A sample letter, which you can personalize and send directly to your elected officials in Washington, can be found in the Advocacy Action Center of our website,

Please send the letter today! And tell your friends and everyone in your address book to do the same. Congress needs to understand how critically important the ALSRP is to the search for a treatment. They need to know how important this program is to their constituents, the people with ALS they were elected to represent. Contact Congress TODAY!

If you have any questions, please contact the Advocacy Department at or 1-877-444-ALSA. Thank you!!
