WOW. Just wow. 100 volunteers took over 16 concession stands at American Family Field last night for Lou Gehrig Day. As our first in-person event in over a year, it was truly a success, and we loved seeing everyone’s faces again! THANK YOU to every single person who volunteered or purchased something from an ALS stand last night. You’re making a difference in our community!

We also send a huge thank you to those who represented our Chapter on the field and in the stands! What a magical night.

The Ballad of Bryan Wayne Galentine: How one man's dream led to creation of Lou Gehrig Day across MLB

"When he was told he was going to die, Bryan Wayne Galentine started to think about what he wanted to leave behind. Every day, for however long amyotrophic lateral sclerosis allowed him to live, the disease was going to steal from him. It would come for his legs, and then it would attack his lungs, and then it would rob his voice. His recourse, his way to fight the inevitable, was to make damn sure it didn't take his legacy."

Click below to learn about how Bryan Wayne Galentine's dream led to the creation of Lou Gehrig Day. What an incredible read!

As an entire sport both honors a baseball icon and raises ALS awareness, here's how Galentine's fight against the disease helped bring the day into existence.

On May 26th, the Wisconsin Chapter Development Team (and a few volunteer leaders!) went to American Family Field to learn the ropes for the big June 3rd Lou Gehrig Game. We had so much fun and cannot wait to see our 100 volunteers in action tomorrow night. We’ll also have members of our ALS community sitting in the stands and cheering the Brewers on to victory!

If you’ll be in attendance tomorrow night, be sure to order from a Wisconsin Chapter stand on the second floor. All tips and 10% of concession proceeds go directly to the Wisconsin Chapter. We’ll be the ones in the red #vsALS hats! See you tomorrow 😉 Go Brewers! ⚾️

Meet "Super Doc!"

Exciting news! Fresh copies of the new children's book, Super Doc., have arrived!

This magical children's book is written and illustrated by the award-winning team of Jane Brandi Johnson and Lisa Bohart. It is an action-packed adventure about a magical veterinarian and will bring big smiles to all readers - young and old - who love animals!

This collaboration between Super Doc and The ALS Association Wisconsin Chapter is in memory of Mrs. Sandra Bohart and Dr. Joseph Kelley who both lost their precious lives to ALS. Joe Kelley was a graduate of the University of Wisconsin and the owner of Sauk Prairie Small Animal Hospital. Sandra Bohart was a prominent member of Sarasota, Florida. Just like Super Doc, Sandra and Joe were both heroes to their clients, friends, and families.

Each donation of $25 means one copy of "Super Doc" to enjoy with your family or to give as a gift to a loved one. Put on your magic cape and join in the fun with Super Doc to help people fighting ALS!

Raising ALS Awareness is harder than one might think. It's about telling the hard stories and being honest about the realities of ALS. This month, we interviewed Ruth Wardinski, our May Hometown Hero, who's a super-volunteer and the co-founder of The Next Chapter Group. Read Ruth's story, learn about The Next Chapter Group, and get her advice on volunteering after losing a loved-one to ALS.

The Evening of Hope: Gala from Home was a success. We had incredible participation in our online auction and attendance of the virtual event. We could feel our community coming together, even if we weren’t able to be physically together in a grand ballroom. But, it's been a hard year, and there is still a financial gap that remains.

The ALS Association Wisconsin Chapter is reaching out for help in raising $60,000 to meet our goal for ALS Research. Click below to visit our donation platform that will remain open until April 15th.

Hello everyone, My colleague Kim Hager and I are interested in studying the experiences and barriers to accessing mental health services for families. For the purpose of our research, we intend to compare three groups – caregivers of children with one or more mental health conditions (including developmental diagnoses), caregivers of children with mental health conditions and common medical conditions, and caregivers of children with mental health conditions and rare diseases. Caregivers include biological parents, adoptive parents, foster parents, step-parents, guardians and kinship homes with children under the age of 18. The survey is nationwide and open to families who live anywhere within the United States. The hope is the survey results will assist mental health providers in tailoring services to meet families’ needs. The study was approved by the IRB and survey is anonymous. Please help us by filling out the survey and/or sharing it. English survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/PQFSMVV Spanish survey:https://es.surveymonkey.com/r/2DXD5TX Thank you and we appreciate all your help
Hello, My wife died of ALS on February 3rd and I have many items to sell to help with funeral expenses. Do you have any suggestions of where I can sell these items? Electric wheelchair Two rolators Walker Shower seat Several toilet risers Please help. You can Facebook message me Ted
Hello Ladies and Gentlemen of The A.L.S. Association. I'm from the UK. In this country A.L.S. is more commonly referred to as M.N.D. (Motor Neurone Disease). I'm a musician (Chris) from Keswick. I've busked in the town for many years and because of this I've been asked to play in Tearooms, Guest Houses, Hotels, Cafés and various small venues. People from all over the world come to Keswick in the beautiful Lake District. (Home of the red squirrel) I've sold many CDs to visitors from near and far including Japan, The States, France, Germany and places too numerous to mention. Unfortunately I was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease in 2018 and can no longer play guitar. The Motor Neuron Disease Association (M.N.D.A) is wonderful and helps people and their families with many issues brought on by this awful disease. It also helps fund research in the hope that one day there may be a cure. Work continues all the time. It relies on charitable donations only and has no government funding. Motor Neuron Disease got me thinking of how I could help raise funds for the M.N.D. Association. Hence the idea of an album of songs. I can no longer play guitar but still manage to compose with keyboard. The results of which is a brand-new album entitled 'Legacy'. It has 19 numbers many of which were written during lockdown. Some of my older, guitar based, material has been re-mastered and re-mixed but all are original. If you would like an album your donation to this excellent cause would be most appreciated. A nominal donation of £7.00 ($9.00) (Suggested Price) per album would be most appreciated. I am now a member of 'Bandcamp'. So you can download the album. It's simple. Go to : 'JustGiving!' : https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/Christopher-Jordan2 https://www.facebook.com/christopher.jordan.90663894 Make a donation. Then go to my page on 'Facebook' or contact me via e-mail and I will send you a code. Go to : https://chrisjordan2.bandcamp.com/yum Enter the code and download the album. Don't forget the wonderful M.N.D. Association's page on: www.mndassociation.org to find out more about the disease and how they help families, victims and fund research. 100% of all donations will go to the M.N.D. Association The following photograph shows me in better times. My arms and hands have now lost a lot of their use, I can't walk and I use my ventilation for many hours during the day as well as all night every night. So it's a question of doing something satisfying every day and trying to live in the moment. Let's hope our wonderful scientists and doctors, on both sides of the Atlantic, make progress in searching for a cure. Then it'll be : 'Second star to the right and on until morning.' Thank You Very Much, Chris. PS. You can find a video of me playing live on my 'Facebook' page. PPS. Would you be kind enough to pass this message on to as many people as possible ?
Hello friends of ALS Wisconsin! I work at TMJ4 and we're looking for nominations for our annual Positively Milwaukee Awards. Do you know a volunteer, healthcare worker, community advocate or all-around inspiring person in SE Wis. who deserves recognition? They could win up to $5000 for the charity of their choice and be highlighted in our November TV special honoring local unsung heroes. Lots of categories to choose from. Nominate at tmj4.com/awards. Deadline to nominate is Sept. 18th.
My first symptoms of ALS occurred in 2011, but was diagnosed in 2013. I had severe symptoms ranging from shortness of breath, balance problems, couldn't walk without a walker or a power chair, i had difficulty swallowing and fatigue. I was given medications which helped but only for a short burst of time, then i decided to try alternative measures and began on ALS Formula treatment from Akanni herbal centre , It has made a tremendous difference for me (Visit www. akanniherbalcentre .com). I had improved walking balance, increased appetite, muscle strength, improved eyesight and others.
Hello everyone, my grandfather passed away from the cruelty of ALS 10 years ago. Ever since he was diagnosed, my mother found comfort in painting her journey through grief and immense heartache during this tragic time and after his passing. When the paintings were finished. I composed the song for this video I am sharing with you now. It has all the paintings along with the words explained for each and the grief it brung to her and everybody that knew and loved my grandfather. She also has a website you can view everything separately or together as well. If you found it in your heart to view this video and share with others, it would mean the world to us and many others, hope. www.windymorey.com
FREE DONATION: Brand new salon chair and wash bowl with stand. Never been used. Let me know if interested.
Looking to donate some supplies that my mom needed sadly she passed from ALS a few weeks ago. So we would like to donate these supplies to someone that could use them. Please pm me, Syringes, sucking machine canisters, bandages etc.

We wrapped up the 2019 Waupaca ALS Benefit Ride as a huge success. Despite the rain... When it Matters Most, Together We Ride! ALS impacts us all in different ways Our mission is not solely to raise money. We share love, grief, and loss. We spread awareness and understanding. We show compassion and serve a greater purpose. THAT is what brings us all together #VSALS. We thank you ALL for continuing to help spread the message, we cannot give up until we find a cure.
