ALS is not an incurable disease.
It's an underfunded one.
In 2007, I lost my dad to ALS when I was only seven years old. Since then, I've raised more than $50,000 for research and continue to do so in his memory.
The money that I raise for ALS research benefits the ALS Therapy Development Institute, the only nonprofit biotech dedicated solely to finding effective therapies to treat and cure ALS. ALS TDI and its scientists actively discover and develop treatments for ALS. It is the world’s first and largest nonprofit biotech focused 100% on ALS research. Led by people with ALS, their families, and drug development experts, ALS TDI understands the urgent need to slow and stop this disease.
Please take a moment to help me continue to honor my dad, and to offer hope to those currently living with ALS, by making a contribution of any amount to fund vital scientific research. I would greatly appreciate your generosity, support, and kindness.

Rust was my dad's favorite color and the "Halpern" type is modeled after his signature.
