$1,000 -  New  Adjustable Mattress Set for a Patient

 A.L.S. patients tend to need more back support and many of them spend most of their day in their bed. Discomfort and achiness is a common complaint. A new mattress can make a world of difference to someone like that.



The patient can hit a key with their finger and it “speaks” a phrase, “nice to meet you” etc. or they can type out what they’d like to express.


Often the spouse, parents or other family members take on the role of primary caregiver of the patient. Respite care is the act of bringing in outside help, in the form of a CNA or Nurse to take care of the patient while the family member gets out of house to have time to be alone, run errands, hit the spa, whatever they need to do.

$50 - A Day at Summer Camp for the Child of an A.L.S. Patient

These children watch their parent suffer with this terrible, fatal disease, slowly becoming more and more paralyzed, while simultaneously watching their other parent suffer under increasing bills while struggling to live on half their income, the kids tend to get lost in the shuffle and their sports and extra-curricular activities are usually the first to be cut from the family budget due to time and financial difficulties, Summer camp is such a wonderful gift to let the kids, get out of the house and have fun with other kids the same age, and to forget about their problems, because otherwise their parents can’t afford it.
