The amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) Diagnosis Information Page is intended to provide educational information and healthcare savings resources for those living with this diagnosis.

According to the ALS Association, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, often referred to as "Lou Gehrig's Disease," is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Motor neurons reach from the brain to the spinal cord and from the spinal cord to the muscles throughout the body. When the motor neurons die, the ability of the brain to initiate and control muscle movement is lost. The progressive degeneration of the motor neurons in ALS eventually leads to their death.
