Colombian Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Association

We Can't Help Everyone, But Everyone Can Help Someone.

1 in 300 people are at risk of receiving an ALS Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis diagnosis, also known as Lou Gehrig disease, or Stephen Hawking disease, and we are in urgent need of your help so that we can carry on supporting people with ALS. We would like to be considered for grant/donation charitable support from your organization.

Colombian Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Association

Non-profit organization created to provide guidance and support for patients, relatives, and caregivers, so that they can face this disease with the best possible quality of life. We have been supporting people with ALS since 2008, and we are a member of the International Alliance of ALS/MND Associations.

You can help us grow our team of specialists so that we can provide immediate support to our patients while they get access to the services provided by their healthcare provider, and not waste valuable time in getting treatment to help with their quality of life. Your support is crucial to our efforts as there are large knowledge gaps when receiving and giving an ALS diagnosis, and patients and their families tend to feel extremely lost and alone when faced with this reality, sometimes waiting more than a year to receive a confirmed diagnosis, with no access to reliable information and support networks. Our healthcare system unfortunately does not always work efficiently and with the speed required, and specialist medical appointments and therapies can be hard to get.

Help us to achieve our mission of helping over 3000 people living with ALS in Colombia
