One of the many challenges researchers face in their war against ALS is that it is difficult to study the nerves most affected by ALS during life. The gift of tissue donation empowers ALS research. It enables scientists to directly examine the brain and spinal cord for clues that will help advance treatments for this devastating disease.
The donation of brain and spinal cord tissue for ALS research is the most generous gift you can make. It will help future generations in the quest to find answers and improve our understanding of ALS, allowing researchers and scientists to find better medications, treatments and ultimately a cure.
