This website was born out of love and loss.

It began with the devastating experience of watching a loved one from the start to the end of her struggle with this incredibly cruel disease. First the shocking diagnosis....then  the days and nights of watching her suffer. Watching the loss of the use of her hands.... then her legs, and the multiple falls and injuries sustained as a result .... then her speech and her ability to swallow... until she no longer could.

Then, watching her die as her breath became labored to the point where she could no longer breathe.

During the ordeal of watching a person I dearly loved suffering,  I was in close contact with her doctor, Orla Hardiman, MD, who opened the door to my having a greater understanding about the ALS research at Trinity College, University of Dublin. Dr. Hardiman took the time to give details of what this research meant on an International level. Dr. Hardiman gave me information I wasn't able to find or understand otherwise.

The reason for launching this site is to hasten a cure for all those brave people living everyday with ALS..... and the families and friends who love them and do their best to comfort and care for them.

And, finally, for all those, young and older, who are yet to be diagnosed with this fatal disease.

It's chilling to think that every 90 minutes in the US someone is diagnosed with ALS/MND and every 90 minutes someone dies from ALS/MND.

We are dedicated to funding research to put a stop to this terrible suffering! Click here to see the work that is underway.
