Testimonial

We cannot express our gratitude enough to thank you all, the center and support groups you have offered to ease the day to day trials and tribulations this terrible disease brings with it. Coping has been immeasurably more bearable because of people like you and those who support the ALS Center. It is an honor to truly know you all.  -Ken
