What is ALS?

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease, is a progressive neuromuscular disorder affecting the brain cells that control body movement. In this disease, the gradual loss of neurons in the brain and spinal cord leads to weakness and difficulties with movement. More than 3000 Canadians currently suffer from ALS or other forms of motor neuron disease.
