Managing Quality of Life for ALS Patients

Winning the Fight is a mostly volunteer 501(c)3 non-profit organization that develops and studies nutritional therapies for ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis). They developed a metabolic program for ALS called the Deanna Protocol®  and scientific studies show that the program is indeed effective! Winning the Fight posted a very interesting article on their site and we wanted to share it with you.

Management Versus Cure
Scientists have been seeking a cure for ALS for over 130 years and none has been found. While scientists look for a cure for future ALS patients, thousands of patients currently suffering from ALS die as they wait for that cure to come. The life expectancy for those with ALS is so short that those living with the disease today most likely will not be alive to witness the discovery of a cure. Even if they would be alive when a cure is discovered, the chance of them remaining alive to see that cure gain FDA approval and become readily available to the public is slim.

As you can see, any cure that is found will benefit those diagnosed in the future, not those who have ALS now and are facing a life expectancy of two to five years. Who in the medical community is focusing them? Who is trying to keep them alive and well long enough for a cure to be found?

Winning the Fight, Inc. is the only organization that has bee focusing its research on prolonging the lives of those who have ALS now, improving their quality of life, and maintaining their physical function until a cure is found. This cause is just as worthy as the mission to find a cure, yet Winning the Fight’s research only received .009% of the total funding from last year’s Ice Bucket Challenge. (We received $10,000 and ALS Association received $110,000,000.) Those who are suffering and dying now deserve more than .009% of the nation’s financial commitment to ALS during this year’s ice bucket challenge. Wouldn’t you agree?

If you’d like to donate to organizations looking for a cure, great! You should. Please consider splitting your funds between Winning the Fight and those organizations. There are ALS patients who need you now. Please, give them more than .009%.
