Every 90 minutes someone is diagnosed with – or dies from – ALS.
This fatal disease can strike anyone at any time. It takes away the freedom to walk, to talk, to run and dance. To laugh. To hug. To eat. To breathe. We fight to give that independence back – and help empower people to live life to the fullest.

The ALS Association is the largest private funder of ALS research in the world. The Association funds global research collaborations, provides assistance for people with ALS and their families through our nationwide network of chapters and certified clinical care centers, and advocates for better public policies for people with ALS. The ALS Association builds hope and enhances quality of life while urgently searching for new treatments and a cure.
The Sean M. Healey & AMG Center for ALS at Mass General brings together forward-thinking innovators from diverse fields and experiences across the globe to radically accelerate therapy development in pursuit of a cure for ALS. Launching the first-ever ALS platform trial, the Healey Center investigators are revolutionizing how treatments are advanced for people with ALS and broadening access to care and treatments. At the Healey Center for ALS, we are dedicated to collaborations that will have a worldwide impact, with a broader reach than any single researcher could achieve alone. Our goal is to inspire teamwork among the best physicians, scientists and engineers from across the globe so that in the future, ALS will be a disease from the past.
Compassionate Care ALS (CCALS) is a nonprofit organization with a mission to support people diagnosed with ALS, their families, healthcare providers, and communities as they navigate the complexities, both physical and emotional, associated with the disease. The organization provides resources including equipment, educational opportunities, Medicare/Medicaid assistance, communication assistance, guidance and awareness with regards to living with ALS, caregiving, and exploring end-of-life when invited. CCALS offers an innovative approach to delivering support and services to our clients, which we tailor to the needs of each individual and their support network. We work with ALS patients in 38 states and numerous foreign countries.
