A close friend of mine has been diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). The mission of the ALS Association (www.alsa.org) is
To discover treatments and a cure for ALS, and to serve, advocate for, and empower people affected by ALS to live their lives to the fullest.
I would be grateful to readers of this blog who join me in contributing to the ALS Association (P.O. Box 37022, Boone, IA 50037-0022). Please notify me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will tell my friend of your kindness unless you prefer anonymity. Thank you.
