"ALS is a brutal disease. We need to help people with ALS and find a cure."
Mark Robin

There are many organizations and researchers helping people with ALS as well as working to find relief from symptoms and ultimately, a cure. We would love to fund them all, but have selected three we encourage you to support.

 The Gleason movie was difficult to watch but hit home so strongly. We recognized ourselves in many of the scenes, including the incredible support surrounding Steve and Michel.  Team Gleason  focuses on technical support for People with ALS (PALS)  and their families. This is a great grassroots organization. Please help fund it!

  ALS Society, Evergreen Chapter , addresses the real-life needs of the approximately 100 ALS patients in the Northwest, including Mark. They loaned us the bed and shower chair which make Mark’s life more comfortable as well as an Eye Gaze communication system (all denied by insurance). Regional chapters are an important source of practical information and personal support to families like ours. Once we tapped into Evergreen, we felt understood and had immediate needs met. Please consider funding this great regional resource.
