Aiming to work with ALS Society of Canada and ALS Ontario, our mission is to support A.L.S patients and their families so that they may achieve and maintain the quality of life that they and their families deserve. Our focus is on providing support in everyday life, to mitigate the long-term effects of living with a terminal illness. Long-term goals are to establish foundations and funds that specifically focus on the family system. All children deserve the opportunity to enjoy their childhood along with their family and we will not let A.L.S take that away.  Scholarship funds, family vacation funds, caregiver relief and respite, and family fun nights are all in our long-term plan.  We understand the financial burden of caring for a relative with A.L.S. and endeavor to provide funds specifically geared to family quality of life, so that every family has an opportunity to spend a night together, not as a caregiver or patient, but as a child, sibling, and parent.

How will the $10K be used?
