RECENT ASK ME WEBINAR ALS from the Caregivers Perspective

In honor of National Family Caregivers Month, please watch our ASK ME educational webinar, “ALS from the Caregiver’s Perspective,” as we discuss ALS from the perspective of two women who each cared for a person living with ALS.

Panelists included Mari Fuentes, who cared for her husband, filmmaker Anton Maillie, and Trish Rice, who cared for her son, writer and poet Ryan Farnsworth. We are grateful to both Mari and Trish, who continue to honor their loved ones by supporting our mission and the ALS community.
