Join the ALS NationFred F. Agoura Hills and San Francisco, California
In 2003, I joined the fight against Lou Gehrig’s Disease. During my time as the President and CEO of The ALS Association Golden West Chapter, I have personally seen the devastation that ALS causes. We have lost too many people - wonderful people - to this disease. Now is the time for us to band together. Now is the time to work with one purpose and with one goal. Hear the voices of some of the many people who are committed to creating a world without ALS. They are from different backgrounds and experiences – but all are united with focus and determination to conquer this disease. They are THE ALS NATION. Please share this story to raise awareness and encourage others to join in our efforts. My thanks to Lucia Bogatay, Tracy Carver, Matteo Chiari, Juri Kameda, Catherine Lomen-Hoerth, M.D., Ph.D., Alex Sulyman, Kay and Philip Thomas, Senator Art Torres, and Cameron Ward for sharing their stories and to Patrick McMinn for creating this film. We will never give up. It is only together that we will defeat ALS.
