Jays From the Couch Partners with ALS Society of Canada to Beat the Disease

 

Jays From the Couch is launching an awareness campaign in an effort to do our part in moving toward eliminating Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

 

 

Regular followers of the Jays From the Couch Radio podcast, would have heard me discuss the experience of having a family member struck by ALS- Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis. Watching a family member deteriorate is an unimaginable, emotionally painful experience for everyone involved. It is for that reason, Jays From the Couch has partnered with the ALS Society of Canada in an effort to raise awareness, and funds, in an effort to beat this terrible disease.

 

Donations can be made by following the link below, or any time via the permanent link on the Jays From the Couch homepage. 

 

Please donate to the Jays From the Couch ALS Campaign

 

As founder of Jays From the Couch, I have decided to create my own fundraising site to do my part to challenge ALS. As you know ALS is a devastating disease with no treatments or cure. ALS is a terminal disease that takes away people’s ability to walk, talk, and eventually breathe. My family has witnessed first hand the suffering this disease inflicts on people and their families. With your support, we can change all that. Your donations, regardless of size, will help us move closer to finding a way to beat this terrible disease.

 

Support from the Jays From the Couch fundraising site will help to create a better reality for people and families living with ALS by enabling access to expensive support services and equipment. Funds raised will also support research so that one day soon ALS will be a treatable, not terminal disease. Many leading ALS researchers believe that effective treatment options are now a matter of when, not if and that research discovery is limited only by the amount of funding available to pursue it. This makes the Jays From the Couch ALS fundraising site an important vehicle for progress, so please support our efforts.

 

 

About ALS Canada

ALS Canada is a national organization responsible for the ALS Canada Research Program – funding peer-reviewed research grants and fostering collaboration amongst Canadian researchers, helping to nurture new ideas and build capacity. ALS Canada has a role in Ontario, similar to that of the Provincial Societies, providing services and support for people living within our provinces – they help fill the gaps between the healthcare system and needs of people living with ALS. They advocate federally, provincially and locally on behalf of people and their families for better government support and access within the healthcare system.

 

ALS Research

The ALS Canada Research Program brings together top Canadian researchers in collaboration through our annual research conference, helping to nurture new ideas and build capacity. With the help of an International Peer-Review Panel, grants are awarded to the best ALS research projects possible that will move us closer towards finding a treatment for ALS.

 

The ALS Canada Research Program aims to accelerate research impact through a comprehensive national program focused on translating scientific discoveries into treatments for ALS, and fostering Canada’s strong and networked ALS research community to build capacity and collaboration. Support for the ALS Canada Research Program is made possible by the generosity of donors, the ALS Societies across Canada, Brain Canada and the federal government’s Canada Brain Research Fund
