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

Let's Speak With Our Threads During ALS Awareness Month in the U.S.!

May is U.S. ALS Awareness Month.

It is also the month when advocates will gather in Washington, DC, to take the case for increased research funding to our legislators.

We can all be walking billboards to spread ALS awareness and to show solidarity in the fight. How about adding an "ALS Is Stealing Our Loved Ones Piece By Piece" t-shirt to your wardrobe? They attract attention and they are nice quality shirts. A sea of shirts in our nation's capital or in your hometown will be a nice start on ALS Awareness Month.
Shirts are available online from the ALS Association Florida Chapter store. The price is $15 plus shipping.

It's a nice way to exercise free speech on behalf of those who can't speak. It's a great way to draw attention to ALS.


  1. ALS Awareness Month "event" has been established on fb. Good place to share and get ideas.

  2. For those attending the Washington conference- look for the dramatic awareness display developed and presented by the ALSA Florida Chapter and the 150 black t-shirted mannequins all lined up.
