Fighting for effective treatments and cures, and helping people with ALS to live their lives to the fullest.
Everything we do advances the search for effective treatments and cures for ALS
Join the Fight Against ALS
One-time or monthly donations help us be able to provide free services to people battling ALS in California and Hawaii.
Enthusiastic volunteers are key to our success! Volunteers can contribute in many ways - through their time, knowledge, skills and leadership.
You can host an event to help support the ALS community and push towards a treatment and a cure. It's easy to get started!
Join this nationwide movement by walking for those affected by ALS. Help the Golden West Chapter meet our goal!
Bike, run, swim, or hike in support of those living with ALS. We have many exciting Team Challenge events across California and Hawaii.
Join a Support Group
Support groups are a great place for people living with ALS and their loved ones to share their personal experiences and learn more about strategies for preserving independence and maximizing quality of life.
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.
