Thanks to George Goodwin for putting it in his ALS Independence newsletter available online. If you send him an email the newsletter comes to your inbox a few times a month. He's had ALS 20 years I think and does the letter himself.

Another source for lists & sites, some of which may overlap those already listed, but is very comprehensive- beyond what you find on the medical supply sites.
