MDA was there from the beginningfphoto5

MDA provided me and my family the wisdom we needed to handle this disease. We literally needed MDA every day of Mom’s illness. They provided expert medical care, told us about the latest ALS research and clinical trials, and kept us informed about what might happen next and what equipment we would need.

From the beginning, MDA told us they would be there for us every step of the way – and they were.

Betty’s Battle

My hope is that MDA’s Betty’s Battle will be able to fund the research necessary to find a cure, so other families don’t have to go through this like my family did.

I want to humanize ALS, so people understand what it does both to those who have it, and to their families. ALS took one of the sweetest people who ever walked this earth. I want to do whatever I can to stop it from taking somebody else’s loved one.

How can I help?

Make a donation, organize an event, be an MDA advocate – there are many ways to help defeat ALS. If we work together, I know we can win.

MDA Against ALS
MDA is the world leader among voluntary agencies fighting ALS, offering the most comprehensive range of services. People with ALS receive care at 200 MDA-supported ALS clinical centers across the country. MDA also leads the search for a treatment or cure for ALS through its aggressive, worldwide research program.
