Research Facts
The ALS Society of Canada was founded in 1977, and is dedicated to working "with the ALS community to improve the lives of people affected by ALS through support, advocacy and investment in research for a future without ALS." ALS stands for Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and causes the death of neurons controlling voluntary muscles. It is sometimes called Lou Gehrig's disease after a famous baseball player who died of it.
