ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease)
Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis is a progressive neurodegenerative
disease that slowly robs a person of the ability to walk, speak,
swallow and, eventually, breathe. With no known cause or cure, a
person can expect to live typically 2 to 5 years from the time of
diagnosis. ALS has no racial, ethnic or socioeconomic boundaries ––
and in only 10 percent of cases there is a family history of ALS.
Today, there are approximately 30,000 people in the US living with
ALS and 5,600 people in the US are diagnosed every year. At any
given time, there are an estimated 500 families living with ALS in
Oregon and Southwest Washington.
