ALS, more commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, affects more than 30,000 people across the United States. In Michigan alone, more than 1,000 people are currently battling this disease. ALS attacks the motor neurons in the brain and spinal cord that control the ability to move, speak, swallow and eventually breathe, while the mind stays fully aware.

ALS of Michigan, Inc. is a non-profit organization which provides services, education and support to people with ALS, their families and caregivers in Michigan to help them live as fully as possible. — G.G.
