An Update from ALS Association – DC/MD/VA Chapter - 09/20/13

The following post is a project update from Kyle Klatt, Campaign Organizer, and the ALS Association – DC/MD/VA Chapter Grassroots campaign that raised $3,150 to provide iPads for ALS patients who are unable to communicate.

DC – ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) is a progressive, fatal disease that paralyzes the body. Many times, a person living with ALS, called PALS, will have their mouth, throat, and diaphragm affected by the disease making it difficult or impossible to speak. One of the programs we offer free of charge is an assistive-technology loan closet to help PALS who have lost the ability to speak continue to communicate with friends, family and care providers.
