“I help fight for those with ALS because I have seen from afar the devastating impact this disease has on so many. I believe strongly in the importance of increasing scientific discovery, and the program’s services that help these individuals, both in the day-to-day and long-term. I am so proud to be a part of this movement and hope that my work will have a positive impact on those with ALS and their loved ones.”
