The ALS Association

ALS Ice Bucket Challenge Progress

Local Services Available in Oklahoma


Our mission:
To discover treatments and a cure for ALS, and to serve, advocate for, and empower people affected by ALS to live their lives to the fullest.

Receiving a diagnosis of ALS is challenging and overwhelming. While no two people with ALS will experience the condition the same way, there is a great deal of collective knowledge as well as valuable resources available.

Assistance For Diagnosed Persons and Families:
Information about ALS and living with ALS; referrals to national, state and local resources to assist persons diagnosed with ALS, caregivers and healthcare professionals throughout Oklahoma.

Durable Medical Equipment Loan Program:
Durable medical equipment available to loan those diagnosed with ALS without a source to pay for the equipment. Including those admitted to hospice services, or awaiting customized equipment delivery.

Education and Outreach:

  • The Meet and Greet Educational Support and Connection Program will provide educational opportunities through organized community events providing vital information, education, and networking for those diagnosed with ALS, their family and friends; and for local healthcare practitioners in non-metropolitan areas. Including access to providers of products beneficial to the needs of those living with ALS.
  • The Professional Outreach Program will provide educational programs available to increase awareness of ALS and provide information related to basic care, treatment and support strategies to the professional health care community.
  • The Community Awareness Program will provide educational programs available to increase awareness of ALS and provide information related to the research, advocacy and care service functions of the ALS Association within the general community.
