ALS support forumThis forum is for persons affected by amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and motor neuron disease. This includes diagnosed, their friends, families, and loved ones. Members directly affected by ALS can ask their questions, discuss concerns, and voice your thoughts and experiences with ALS.
This forum was created to give individuals with ALS an opportunity to meet and discuss topics of interest. Individuals recently diagnosed with ALS can feel free to ask other members questions they may have.
ALS that runs in the family is known as familial ALS (or fALS). ALS that doesn’t run in families is called sporadic ALS. Familial ALS is very rare with only about one in ten of all ALS cases being familial.
