BENEFITING: ROYAL CROWN COVENANT SOCIETY INC
About 5 to 10 percent of all ALS patients appear to have a genetic or inherited component. In those families, 50 percent of the all offspring are expected to have the disease. Most who develop ALS are between the ages of 40 and 70. There have been many cases of the disease attacking teenagers, though generally, ALS occurs in greater percentages as men and women grow older. It was once believed that men developed ALS more frequently than women. That no longer appears to be the case, and today both sexes are affected in nearly equal numbers. Each year, more and more people are affected. ALS used to occur among older people but now more and more young people are afflicted. Generally, medical science has little to offer Lou Gehrig’s patients. For most, the diagnosis is an irrevocable sentence to a tortuous journey to the grave. We feel a sense of compassion for these people. Our research team hopes to determine the cause for ALS so that we can teach people how to remove it. We believe there are simple things that can be done that result in slowing or halting the degeneration of ALS. We hope to teach people how to co-operate with the laws of nature to heal the damage done as well. We have had some success with other neurological conditions that encourages us to move forward in our endeavors. We invite your financial support. We hope to make a difference for those suffering under this terrible burden.
