Default where to get info.

So my dad was recently diagnosed with als. My mom has some books that the mda sent her. I was wondering where I could get some info sent to me so that me and my husband can know better of what's going on. Thx.

Contact ALS Association also for info, but I've found this forum to be one of the best places for help and practical solutions.

The series of spiral bound booklets from ALSA are a great place to start... check their website. Also UCSF has some great stuff on their website, and for surprisingly coherent basic info WebMD of all places!
