Les Turner ALS Foundation
About the Foundation
Founded in 1977, the Les Turner ALS Foundation is Chicagoland’s leader in comprehensive ALS care and one of the longest-serving ALS groups in the country.
Throughout our history, we have taken an individualized approach to ensure each person living with the disease receives the best quality of care and access to the most promising therapies.
We treat each person like family, supporting them every step of the way, and provide their loved ones with answers and encouragement.
Our Les Turner ALS Center at Northwestern Medicine is led by the most well-respected and successful clinicians and researchers in the field, advancing vital care and research in pursuit of life-enhancing treatments and a cure.
We provide individualized care, local community support and hope through scientific research.
In over 40 years of operation, we have raised over $75 million to fight ALS. Through our collaborative research and symposiums for healthcare professionals, we reach the ALS community worldwide and are one of the founding members of the International Alliance of ALS/MND Associations.
