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, Golf Professionals will lend their muscles and golf from sunrise to sunset to support those living with ALS. Please help support your local Golf Pros to raise funds and awareness for the ALS Society of BC.
