Our Team

If you're a person with ALS or you care for one, we're here to help. We will connect you with the local resources you need including equipment loans, grants to help with ALS related expenses, and access to ALS multidisciplinary clinics and clinical trials.

The progression of ALS varies significantly from one person to another. Responding to each person's individual needs, ALS of Nevada is available to provide vital services and reliable information.

We are committed to improving the lives of people afflicted with ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease), as well as serving their families and caregivers, throughout Nevada. 

"Thank you for what you do that helps us in a way that otherwise wouldn't happen. The help you provide, not only financial help but tremendous emotional support. We do not feel alone with the team of people ALS of Nevada provides."  David

"Your unwavering support and words of encouragement are the driving force which enables us to move forward as we navigate this ver difficult challenge...living with ALS. We are truly grateful for everything you have done for me and my husband. Thank you for helping us." Peggy and Jim
