José Cofiño - member of a loving family, friend, classmate and colleague living with ALS

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.
