I AM ALS

I AM ALS is a patient-led, patient-centric community that reshapes public understanding of this disease, provides key resources to the community, and creates opportunities for patients to lead the fight against ALS and search for a cure. I AM ALS's Navigation program will empower patients and their families with relevant medical and research information, support them emotionally, connect them with practical resources, and help them build a community around them. One of the practical resources we would like to connect them with is legal assistance as ALS patients and their families often need help with preparing advanced directives (wills, power of attorney for health care etc.) and estate plans. We would like to access We The Action's network to connect ALS patients and their families with lawyers who can help them prepare advanced directives (wills, power of attorney for health care etc.) and estate plans.
