ALS can hit anyone, at any time, regardless of age, gender or ethnic origin. The average life expectancy after diagnosis is two to five years. Support equipment costs an average of $140,000 per patient; nursing and/or home care costs are up to 10 times that amount.
During the month of June, PGA of BC golf professionals will golf from sunrise to sunset, in support of people living with ALS in BC. ALS does not stop and neither can we. The need for your support is more vital and urgent than ever. We hope you will help if you are able.
Congratulations to Christ Church on winning the $20,000 prize donation in the Great Canadian Giving Challenge contest hosted by CanadaHelps! Thank you to all who participated in supporting Canadian charities!
