We are committed to creating and leading a transparent collaborative research process that involves ALS patients today and honors those whose journey with this disease has ended. We are guided by passion, love and the spirit of entrepreneurship upon which we were founded."

Veterans and ALS
A 2005 study found that veterans are 60% more likely to contract ALS than the general population, regardless of when they served.
ALS.net is 100% focused on finding treatments to end ALS.
To date, our supporters have raised $75,000 for ALS research.
