ALS Family Charitable Foundation
This Foundation puts our ALS families first in everything we do. Our in-house programs are open to New England area families and are designed to alleviate some of the financial and emotional burdens of living with ALS.
Over the years we have watched our families come and go, each new diagnosis strengthening our resolve and commitment to our motto, “Until there is a cure, there is the A.L.S. Family Charitable Foundation”.
A diagnosis of ALS is one of the worst things that can happen to a person. They lose their health, independence and financial security. And as we know all too well, when one family member is diagnosed with ALS, they all live it.
That is where we come in. Our Foundation helps in a way that these families really need. We help keep the lights and heat on for the family; we help send children of our patients to college; we help the patient get as good a night’s sleep as they are able to; we help families take what often times is their last vacation together to make some wonderful memories; we take away the fear of not having enough to make the holidays joyous and back to school shopping fun; and we make sure that caregivers are able to take time to take care of themselves, and so much more.
And of course, we also fund research efforts to find better treatment options and a CURE.
Our events are the easiest way to get involved in the fight against ALS. You’ll connect with other members of the ALS Family Charitable Foundation while helping support our patient funds, programs, scholarships, and cutting edge research in the fight against ALS!
Every year our Foundation hosts and takes part in several major fundraising events.
