ALS (aka Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis - Lou Gehrig's diease) is a spinal cord disorder.

If you are a caregiver of an individual with this diagnosis, I would like to post the website for the ALS Association: On the left upper side of the website are resources for caregivers. The website should also lead you to find a chapter in your area.

In my practice I work with individuals and families coping with this incurable disease. It is overwhelming and getting support is important. It is all about reaching out.
