ALS Multidisciplinary Clinic

Help support care for people with ALS and ALS Research by donating to ALS Fund.

Advances in ALS research and clinical care are made possible because of you

The Mass General ALS Research Program and MGH Multidisciplinary Clinic are partially supported through the generous support of individual contributions to our MGH ALS fund. Philanthropic support is critical to patient care and research. Donations help to elicit the greatest potential from the MGH ALS Multidisciplinary Clinic’s superb team, provide top-notch quality care for our patients, and fuel the research that will result in better treatments and ultimately a cure for ALS.  For example, donations support:

•    Research efforts to identify a biomarker for ALS
•    Early lab testing of potential new drug therapies
•    Stem cell research projects
•    Nurses and physical therapists in the clinic
•    24/7 call-in clinic access

Much of our promising work toward finding a cure depends on donations from supportive patients and their loved ones.  Please consider a gift to support ALS research and clinical care today.  Click here to make an on-line donation now or send your check made out to “MGH ALS Fund” to:
