Letter: Local ALS awareness drives matter
To the Editor: About 1,000 people in Illinois have ALS, commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease or motor neuron disease, and about 250 more are diagnosed each year. The disease may seem relatively rare, but we find many people know someone who has been affected by the disease.
At the Les Turner ALS Foundation, we are working toward the day when no one is affected by the disease. We are dedicated to treating and eliminating ALS through research, patient services, education and advocacy.
During National ALS Awareness Month in May, hundreds of Les Turner ALS Foundation volunteers participated in Tag Days drives, collecting donations and raising ALS awareness. The Tag Days drive in Elmhurst was a success, raising more than $1,600.
