Highlights from ALS Connect in 2018

This past year on ALS Connect, our goal has been to feature a wide variety of stories and information to highlight the different facets of ALS, including caregiver tips, living with ALS and updates on research and advocacy.

Featuring people on the front lines battling ALS resonates with others who may not know the personal impact of ALS or have experienced something similar. And because ALS affects more than just the individual with the diagnosis, those perspectives are important as well. Here were some of those posts from over the last year:
