The ALS Association Alabama Chapter

The ALS Association Alabama Chapter The Official page for the ALS Association, Alabama Chapter. 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.

Being an ALS caregiver can be stressful, but most people acting as caregivers also say that they experience a sense of purpose due to their caregiving role. This month, National Family Caregivers Month, is a time to recognize, support, and empower caregivers who give selflessly to care for their loved ones. #ALSAlabama #NationalFamilyCaregiversMonth

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!
Great trip to DC to advocate for legislative priorities important to our PALS. Thanks to our families and volunteers for taking the time and effort to visit with all 9 of our representatives in Washington.
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
