The ALS Association Alabama Chapter The Official page for the ALS Association, Alabama Chapter. Sign up for our eNewsletter at www.ALSAlabama.org.
The Alabama Chapter was founded to serve the needs of those living with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (also known as ALS or Lou Gehrig’s Disease) and their caregivers. Initially we only served the North Alabama community, but due to strong interest we have expanded our service area to include the entire state of Alabama.

My home in Nashville just listed, as I am downsizing after my husband passed. It has an addition built specifically for an ALS patient - elevator, ramps, ceiling lift, large roll-in shower, bidet, hand rails, roll under sink, and lots of equipment. If you know of anyone in the area that would benefit from these amenities, please share the link with them. We are just 15 minutes from the Vanderbilt ALS Clinic. Thank you!
My husband was diagnosed in 2008 -- 9 yrs ago, he is still speaking.... nothing else works but that mouth - lol. God has blessed and continues too everyday. Much love to those of you 'whom have lost loved ones to this disease already..... there are changes coming - we have to have faith. Hold on.
I live in Cullman and I want to learn how to sign and learn more about the community. Can someone point me in the right direction?
I have $250.00 for my team Jantastics
