Our mission is very powerful. We will not rest until an effective treatment and, ultimately, a cure is found.

As important as research is, we must not neglect the needs of those living with ALS today. We have a number of important programs and services available to help people living with ALS and their families cope with the day-to-day challenges that confront them. Through free loaner medical equipment, financial assistance grants,connection groups and multidisciplinary ALS clinics, we support people living with ALS and their families throughout North Carolina. The ALS Association North Carolina Chapter supports all of the ALS clinics within North Carolina, as well as a telemedicine clinic that serves patients who are unable to travel to a clinic. We are committed to providing compassionate support to everyone living with ALS in North Carolina.

The North Carolina Chapter works diligently to make sure all ALS patients receive the best possible care and support. With your support, we will be one step closer to finding a cause and cure for this disease while providing the necessary services to those living with and fighting ALS.

We look forward to your help in finding a cure for ALS.
