What is ALS and what causes ALS?

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), sometimes called Lou  Gehrig’s Disease, is a degenerative neuromuscular disease  affecting motor nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord. More  than 30,000 Americans have ALS at any one time.

Although first described in 1869, the cause, cure and means of  prevention of ALS are still unknown. For this reason, your support continues to be greatly needed.

St. Peter’s ALS Regional Center Lewis Golub MDA/ALS clinic is the only center within 100 miles of the capital district that provides comprehensive ALS services to patients and their families.

  • Fundraising proceeds support local patient services, and care.
  • Free medical & communication equipment and support to ALS research.
