Giving Tuesday is December 3rd!

#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media. On December 3, 2019, help us kick off the giving season by participating in this amazing day. Last year, we were able to raise over $140,000 for ALS research! This year, our goal is to raise $100,000 in one day, but we need your help! You can participate on social media by creating a Facebook fundraiser for ALS TDI here. You can learn more about Giving Tuesday with ALS TDI and make a donation on our website here.

Our latest blog provides an overview of the four phases of FDA clinical trials and the role that each one plays in testing the safety and efficacy of potential treatments. Read our blog post explaining the clinical trial phases here.
