Help find a cure for ALS

The Les Turner ALS Foundation is the only independent publicly supported non-profit organization in the Chicago-area devoted solely to the treatment and elimination of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), better known as Lou Gehrig's disease.

The Foundation is affiliated with Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine - where it funds medical research at the Les Turner ALS Research Laboratory and a patient service program at the Lois Insolia ALS Center - and is also a member of Community Health Charities of Illinois and the International Alliance of ALS/MND Associations.
