ALS is a very expensive disease to fight. There is just one FDA-approved treatment that is proven to reduce the progression of the disease by 3 months.

There are treatments/surgeries, which seem to be effective for some, in early stages of the clinical trial process. These are not yet approved by the FDA and not available to the public. Some can be purchased "off-label" meaning they would not be covered by insurance. Some of these drugs can cost $20,000 - $60,000 a year. Your donation will go towards helping cover these medical expenses, as well as potential future uncovered expenses, related to ALS, which will improve Eric's quality of life. Thank you!
