Beyond ALS means seeing people with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) as being much more than the disease, as well as having us focus on a time when research will find a solution for Lou Gehrig's Disease. My journey is not mine alone. My partner, Ben Trust, is by my side every step - one at a time. So, too, are my family and friends. Please join us!
100% of donations through this site go to directly to research at the ALS Therapy Development Institute (ALS-TDI) in Cambridge, Mass.
