Suffering from Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis?
Get ALS Disability Benefits.
Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, or ALS, is an aggressive nervous system disease that attacks certain cells in the brain and spinal cord that keep our muscles moving. It is also commonly referred to as Lou Gehrig’s Disease.
ALS often begins with muscle cramps, twitching and weakness in the hands, legs, feet or ankles. Eventually, ALS affects your ability to control the muscles needed to move, speak, eat and breathe.
There is no known cause or cure for ALS and, eventually, people stricken with this devastating disease will have to stop working. Many times, their spouses or partners must also give up their jobs to become full-time caregivers. Obviously, this loss of income can have an enormous financial impact to an already overwhelming situation.
