What is ALS Awareness Month?
ALS Awareness Month, recognized globally each May, is an opportunity to share information with your community about Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), a fatal neurodegenerative disease, and the unmatched work of the Les Turner ALS Foundation. We invite you, your passion and commitment to a cure, to join us as we spread the message of hope and help for people living with ALS. Above all, ALS Awareness Month is a way for community members to rally around people living with ALS and their families and spread awareness.
Together, we will spread the message of hope and help.

“Although I cannot conduct research in the labs at Northwestern Medicine or provide care at the Lois Insolia ALS Clinic, what I CAN do, just like we ALL CAN, is spread awareness about ALS.”
— Cindy, daughter of person living with ALS
