The summer of '14s ICE BUCKET CHALLENGE was an awesome show of support. Instead of puzzled looks and referring to Lou Gehrig, now people the world over instantly know the horrible nature of ALS. While research is very important, there are tens of thousands of people living with ALS right now who need a different kind of help. Pouring water over your head is not required this summer but you are invited to make a contribution to QUALITY OF LIFE this year.
The ALS Residence in Chelsea (Boston) is the 1st long term care facility in the world specifically designed people living with ALS (pALS). The pALS residents, as well as those with MS, have access to all of the technology required to survive ALS for the rest of their life with the highest level of mobility and independence possible. ALS does not have to be fatal anymore. Support the 2016 WALK4LIVING to show your support for the home of the ALS Residence Initiative. We will not stop until such specialized care is available everywhere. It is about time that pALS were brought into the 21st century.
