We are a group of ALS patients, family members of patients, and volunteers whose lives have been impacted by Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. ALSSO is a non-profit organization to serve the ALS community in the Inland Northwest. ALSSO offers assistance to other non-profit organizations that help families with ALS.

We have joined together in the belief that together we can make a difference in the quality of the lives of those currently living with ALS.

Due to our experience with the disease, we are able to offer support in many forms. There are many ways we can help, such as; provide meals, rides,shopping, chores, social calls, fun activities, home modification projects, and installation of adaptive equipment. When requested by patients and families, we share our experiences of what worked for us and provide other needed assistance within our capabilities.

Good Morning PALS and CALS,

Today we wanted to share some information on the I AM ALS website. They have done a wonderful education series called ASK ME ANYTHING. The series includes many topics including: Caregiving tips and information, Tracheostomy, feeding tubes and clinical trials.

The I AM ALS website offers much input from people and families living with ALS and can be a wonderful resource for many questions that arise.
