This fund has been developed in response to patients who have contacted PAF for help with their medication expenses and could not find help. While this fund has been fully designed and we are ready to provide needed support to these patient communities, this fund is not yet able to accept applications for assistance as we are still working to secure charitable donations that will allow us to open it.

About Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord with no known cause. With the progressive degeneration of motor neurons, the ability of the brain to initiate and control muscle movement is lost, causing patients in the later stages of the disease to be totally paralyzed. ALS usually occurs between the ages of 40 and 70. There are two different types of ALS, in the U.S. sporadic (accounts for 90 to 95% of cases) and familial (accounts for 5 to 10% of cases).
