ALS patients, like all patients, deserve the safest, highest-quality care possible. The fight against preventable medical errors… that fight has just begun and it's also important.

I hope you will donate to fight ALS and consider also donating to one of these three great organizations.  Listen to my podcasts with Sorrel and Chris to learn more.
