2023 END OF YEAR APPEAL
The things that matter the most.
Nothing can prepare you for an ALS diagnosis – or how quickly the disease moves.
Brian Davis was diagnosed with ALS last year at the age of 35. When they received the news, his wife Katy was 12 weeks pregnant with their second child, Penny. Their first daughter, Ada, was about to turn three.
Today, Brian is receiving care at the Lois Insolia ALS Clinic at the Les Turner ALS Center at Northwestern Medicine. Physical therapy has helped him continue walking short distances with the aid of a walker. He’s also in a study at the clinic, helping uncover information that researchers will use to find cures for the disease.
When you make a gift to the Les Turner ALS Foundation, you’re making it possible for families like theirs to get world-class multidisciplinary care that improves health and extends lives – and helps make every moment count.
Your gift also allows us to support families at no cost with care coordination meetings, grants and equipment loans, support groups, and solutions for the daily challenges of living with ALS. With backgrounds in fields like nursing, counseling, social work, and speech-language pathology, our team is there every step of the way.
This holiday season, please join them and make a gift to support ALS care and research through the Les Turner ALS Foundation. The impact of this disease is devastating – but your donation matters so much to the families we serve, like Brian, Katy, Ada, and Penny.
