Our Message

I am showing my support for the ALS Society of Alberta by participating in the 23rd annual Betty's Run for ALS, and I hope you will too. You can donate to my page and/or choose to participate along with me. Sixty per cent of funds raised remain in Alberta for client support services, including the Equipment Loan Program, home visits, information, referrals, support groups, and support for youth through the Support for Champions program. The remaining 40 per cent are invested into the most promising ALS research in Canada.

ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) is a rapid, always fatal, neurodegenerative disease. It attacks the nerves of the body that would normally send messages from the brain to the muscle, resulting in weakness and wasting. Eventually, the individual with ALS is left completely immobilized, with loss of speech and an inability to swallow and breathe. There is no known cause or cure for this devastating disease.

ALS Facts:

• ALS can strike anyone, at any time, regardless of race, gender or age.

• The usual age of onset is 55-65, but people under 20 have been diagnosed.

• Approximately 2,500 - 3,000 Canadians currently live with ALS.

• In at least 90 per cent of cases, it strikes people with no family history of the disease.

• Eighty per cent of people with ALS die within five years of diagnosis.

• A person with ALS can require equipment and care valued at more than $240,000.

• The cause is unknown. There is no known cure or treatment that prolongs life significantly - yet..
