ALS Hope Foundation
Founded in 1999 by Terry Heiman-Patterson, MD, and Jeffrey Deitch, PhD, the ALS Hope Foundation provides funding for the MDA/ALS Center of Hope, the first multidisciplinary ALS clinic in the country, and the Neuromuscular Research Laboratory at Drexel University College of Medicine. The Foundation also provides educational events to inform people living with ALS and the public about ALS research. The ALS Hope Foundation funds local and international efforts to find the cause and cure of ALS. This much needed support is generated through fundraisers and private donations.
We are honored have spent more than 15 years serving the ALS community and are committed to continuing our work until there is a cure.
The mission of the ALS Hope Foundation is to provide long-term support to:
- basic and clinical research programs leading to a cure,
- clinical centers of excellence for the care and treatment of people with ALS,
- support programs for people with ALS and their caregivers that optimize care and promote independence, and
- programs that promote education for people with ALS and physicians about diagnosis, treatment, and care.
