Ways to Donate
Thank you for your interest in supporting the Les Turner ALS Foundation’s mission of research, patient services and education about ALS. There are several ways to make a donation, all of which are easy, quick and secure. The following are just a few of the needs your donation supports:
- $25 can purchase 10 blood sampling kits for ALS research.
- $100 covers four hours of respite care for an ALS family.
- $500 will provide one eight-hour RN visit for patients on a ventilator.
- $1,000 funds the construction of a customized wheelchair ramp, a home modification not often covered by insurance.
- $2,500 covers safe, reliable, handicapped-accessible transportation to and from the Lois Insolia ALS Clinic at the Les Turner ALS Research and Patient Center at Northwestern Medicine for one year.
