ALS Liga calls for pALS to become fundraisers to dispel the disease
Being affected by ALS is terrible and drastic, but it can also become the beginning of something new, because more and more pALS turn into (excellent) fundraisers. That’s how they become true heroes to their companions in need. That’s why ALS Liga is looking for more pALS to collect the necessary funds for scientific research.
After being diagnosed with ALS it’s possible that patients end up in a social isolation, but that doesn’t need to be the case when some adjustments are made. There are plenty of people who can prove this.
Take Marianne, who was diagnosed with ALS three years ago. She didn’t give up and started to voluntarily and actively make an effort for other pALS. Together with family and friends she mobilized all local schools, companies and organizations during her battle against ALS. Late last year she organized a big event and this year an even bigger one. In the meantime Marianne has turned into a true role model concerning fundraising. Her continuous efforts have been the best remedy against social isolation after all.
Do you want to, just like Marianne (but also Eric, Ignace, Timmy, Linda, Kris, Eddy, Mil, Rudy, Lucrèce, Ronny, Antonio, Mirjam, Marc, Erwin, Roger, Angie, Wilfried and many others), engage yourself for other patients in your situation? Then don’t hesitate to contact the ALS Liga. Because you too can turn into a hero for thousands of companions!

What can you do?
Incredible but true: in 2014 the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge flooded the world.
Thanks to your support, the ALS Liga has allocated the proceeds entirely to the scientific research “Project MinE Belgium”, which attempts to find the genetic causes of ALS. The hope to find a solution in the near future increases every day. However, the fight isn’t over yet.
