The A.L.S. Family Charitable Foundation was started in 2001 in hopes of creating a brighter future for those living with A.L.S. in New England and honors all of the courageous individuals and families touched by this disease .
Over 30,000 people are living with A.L.S. today , a disease that causes a progressive degeneration of motor neurons in the body affecting voluntary muscle control. Those affected eventually lose their livelihood, their independence and ultimately their lives.
