My dad, Andy, was diagnosed with ALS in November of 2016. It came as a shock to our family. Since his diagnosis, my dad now has a feeding tube and has lost most of his upper body strength. He has a smile that lights up the room and a fantastic attitude to beat this disease.
There are close to 1,000 pALS (people with ALS) in Michigan battling ALS everyday, and another 200 are diagnosed every year.
ALS of Michigan provides critically needed, community based services to Michigan pALS and their families. From respite care to speech services to equipment loans to support groups, seminars, and workshops, we are there every step of the way to make living with ALS a little bit easier.
But, we need your help!
Please support our walk team so we can continue to provide the services that our ALS community has come to depend on.
