    ALS Awareness

    Charities funding research, providing support for treatment and care, and general support services for those living with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).

    May is ALS Awareness Month. Also known as Lou Gehrig's disease, ALS is a nervous system disease that weakens muscles and impacts physical function due to a breakdown of nerve cells, which reduces functionality in the muscles they supply. Medication and therapy can slow ALS and reduce discomfort, but there's no cure. 

    Charity Navigator presents this list of highly-rated nonprofits working to further research and support those living with ALS. Use our Giving Basket to donate to one or several organizations making a difference.
