Medical equipment to help in the care and day-to-day living of ALS patients can often be expensive. That's why ALS Association Wisconsin Chapter has an inventory of gently used medical equipment that has been donated and is available at no charge to any registered ALS patient. Research won’t help patients already diagnosed with the disease, but the funding of programs like this will help them live out the rest of their lives as comfortably as they can be.

 

ALS is a brutal disease that robs patients of all muscle and body control. Eventually every patient 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.
