OUR VISION Create a World Without ALS OUR MISSION Leading the fight to treat and cure ALS through global research and nationwide advocacy while also empowering people with Lou Gehrig’s Disease and their families to live fuller lives by providing them with compassionate care and support.
Our Vision is to "Create a World Without ALS."
The ALS Association Louisiana-Mississippi Chapter was founded in 2005 to serve the needs of those living with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and their caregivers in the state of Louisiana and expanded its territory to include the state of Mississippi in late 2009. The chapter works to improve the quality of life for people living with ALS and their families.
The ALS Association is the only non-profit organization fighting Lou Gehrig’s Disease on every front. By leading the way in global research, providing assistance for people with ALS through a nationwide network of chapters, coordinating multidisciplinary care through certified clinical care centers, and fostering government partnerships, the association builds hope and enhances quality of life while aggressively searching for new treatments and a cure.
