May is ALS awareness month, and since Amramp works with so many individuals and families who have been affected by this disease, we want to recognize all the work that advocates are doing to find a cure.
ALS, short for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, is a neurological disease that causes muscle weakness and impacts the way our bodies physically function. Only 5% of ALS cases are familial, meaning that the disease was inherited genetically. This means that 95% of ALS cases are sporadic. It can affect anyone, anywhere.
