Raise Money For Your "PALS" (Person with ALS) Today!

ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease) can be physically, emotionally---and financially draining. In addition to essential out-of-pocket expenses such as co-payments and deductibles for doctor visits and prescription drugs, family members must consider care-giving costs. Research shows that the average cost of caring for one of the 30,000 people in the U.S. affected by Lou Gehrig's disease is around $200,000 per a year. Care-giving and medical equipment make up a large majority of this amount, as well as indirect costs such as loss of income from both patient and caregivers. Insurance rarely fully covers the essentials and does not compensate for indirect costs at all. Most people are unprepared to cope with these expenses but by starting a GiveForward fundraising page, you empower friends and family all over the world to provide emotional and financial support. Start a fundraiser for loved one with ALS today!
