What is ALS?

Every 90 minutes someone is diagnosed with ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis), a progressive and fatal neurodegenerative disease. ALS causes muscle weakness, difficulty breathing and swallowing, and paralysis. It can affect anyone, anywhere. Most people with ALS live 2-5 years after their first symptoms. Currently, there is no effective treatment or cure. ALS TDI believes ALS is not an incurable disease; it is an underfunded one.
