ALS is nOt INcurable; ALS IS just underfunded.

And the Live Like Lou Foundation is
doing something about it

Despite the scientific discovery of ALS in 1869, scientists are still years away from finding meaningful treatments or a cure. We think this is unacceptable, and it’s why we’re committed to leaving ALS better than we found it.
