About ALS and The ALS Association Indiana Chapter

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) otherwise known as Lou Gehrig disease, is a 100% fatal progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Motor neurons reach from the brain to the spinal cord and from the spinal cord to the muscles throughout the body. When the motor neurons die the patients lose their ability to speak, eat, move, and eventually breathe. Average life expectancy is two to five years.

The ALS Association Indiana Chapter was founded in 1997 by two families touched by ALS to serve the needs of Hoosiers and their families living with the disease. Our mission is to discover treatments and a cure for ALS, and to serve, advocate for, and empower people affected by ALS to live their lives to the fullest. The Chapter serves more than 500 patients and 2,500 caregivers across the state of Indiana.
