A big day for the #ALS community on Capitol Hill. The full House just approved new and increased federal funding for ALS research at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration Orphan Products Grants Program, National Academy of Sciences and National Institutes of Health (NIH) and full funding for the CDC National ALS Registry.

Thank you to all of the #ALSAdvocates that fought for this funding and all of the members of Congress who voted to support people living with ALS and their loved ones today. Together, we will find treatments and a cure for ALS.

Good for Steve. He deserves it. He has done so much to bring awareness to ALS

We are so proud of Steve for the work he's inspired and the momentum he's helped create. The Congressional Gold Medal in his name represents all those with ALS and so many more. But, there's more to do. #NoWhiteFlags

Thank you to all who supported, called and wrote. Thanks to Senators Bill Cassidy and Patty Murray, Congressman Cedric Richmond, Congressman Steve Scalise, and Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers. Your leadership in making the unlikely happen is a testament to the importance of bringing more awareness to this disease and those who fight it.

ALS TDI

Every 90 minutes someone in the US is diagnosed with ALS, while someone else passes from the disease. So, every 90 minutes this GivingTuesday, ALS TDI will be sharing the stories of those living with ALS and those who have passed from this terrible disease.

As many may know, New York Yankees first baseman Lou Gehrig was the first person to bring national attention to ALS, and it is commonly referred to as Lou Gehrig's disease. After retiring from the MLB in 1939, he passed only two years later in 1941. And although the nation was so impacted by his passing, the first drug for ALS was not approved until 1996. To this date, there are still only two approved treatments for this disease in the United States.

This #GivingTuesday, we call on you to donate and help our lab fund promising treatments and therapies for those living with ALS. You have the power to change the future of this disease. #EndALS

Donate this #GivingTuesday to #EndALS: www.als.net/donate/givingtuesday/?soc=GT200
