Every 90 Minutes 2014
ALS or Lou Gehrig’s disease is a rapidly progressive and ultimately fatal disease. There is no known cure, and the few treatment options that do exist are only able to extend life a relatively short period of time. Death often occurs within 2 to 4 years of diagnosis.
“ALS is not an incurable disease. It is an underfunded disease.”
- Dr. Stanley Appel MD.
Doctors and researchers are leading the charge to find a cure but are in desperate need of funding. With your help, we can accelerate the treatment and cure for ALS from decades to years, and save the lives of the tens of thousands of people living with it.
Our mission is to bring awareness and innovation to finding a cure for ALS. We imagine a world where ALS is a treatable and manageable illness, rather than an underfunded and terminal disease, one that devastates the lives of individuals and their families every 90 minutes.
Through our fundraising efforts, we will ensure that 100% of the money we raise will go directly to research and treatment to find a cure. We’ve done a survey of existing ALS research and we’ve identified and are working with the two organizations leading the charge on the fight to cure ALS. We have outlined the efforts so you can see how our fundraising efforts will help lead to a cure.
