Stephen Heywood Legacy Society
The Stephen Heywood Legacy Society was created to honor Stephen Heywood and all those who choose to support ALS TDI
through planned giving. Stephen Heywood was diagnosed with ALS at age 29. Finding no treatment options, his brother,
James Allen Heywood, founded ALS TDI in the basement of his family's home in 1999 to bring effective treatments to
people with ALS as quickly as possible.
Today, ALS TDI is the world's foremost drug discovery lab focused solely on ALS. Although Stephen is no longer
with us, this same sense of hope, family, and community support drives every decision made at ALS TDI.
