Terry Bradshaw Teams Up with The ALS Association to Raise Awareness of ALS
Terry Bradshaw Teams Up with The ALS Association to Raise Awareness of ALS

The ALS Association has launched a new public awareness campaign featuring Hall of Fame quarterback and FOX Sports announcer Terry Bradshaw to raise awareness of ALS and the progress that has been made since the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge in 2014. Two of the videos released by The ALS Association feature Bradshaw and Pat Quinn, who co-founded the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge five years ago. Bradshaw started working with The ALS Association because of a long-time Pittsburgh Steelers fan who had ALS. Harrison Anderson, a North Carolina man who was diagnosed with ALS in 2016, used his wish from the Dream Foundation to request a call from Bradshaw. On that call, Anderson asked Bradshaw to consider doing a public service announcement for ALS. Anderson died on December 29, only weeks after Bradshaw filmed the PSAs. Fortunately, Harrison got to see the videos before he passed and he was thrilled with them. Our thoughts are with his wife, Robin, and their entire family. We’re glad Harrison’s dream is now a reality.

Advocate

The U.S. government is the single largest funding source of ALS research and care, and ALS advocates play a critical role in securing federal support and concern for the cause. Personal stories and passionate testimonials show Congress why they must do more to find the cure for ALS. We need your help.
