U.S. veterans are approximately twice as likely as those in the general population to be diagnosed with ALS. The Veterans’ Wall of Honor was created to honor and salute U.S. veterans of all military branches from each state that are fighting or have died from ALS. The Veterans’ Wall of Honor page on the ALS national website shows photos, military affiliation and hometown of each veteran and invites visitors to read stories of honored veterans and share their own.
ALS is a brutal disease that robs patients of all muscle and body control. Eventually every one diagnosed with ALS loses the ability to walk, eat and even breathe. Despite advances in treatment and therapies, ALS is still fatal. There is no cure. Yet.
Your donations to ALSA Wisconsin directly help ALS patients and their families who are fighting this disease in Wisconsin. Donate this Giving Tuesday because these brave members of the armed forces in Wisconsin spent their lives fighting for us. We owe it to them to fight for a cure.
