We Support the Les Turner ALS Foundation

Chicagoland’s Leader in Comprehensive ALS Care.

The Les Turner ALS Foundation is one of the longest-serving independent ALS groups in the country. For over 40 years, the Les Turner ALS Foundation has taken an individualized approach to ensure each person living with the disease receives the best quality of care and access to the most promising therapies.

What is ALS?

While technology considered a "rare disease,"experts predict an individual's lifetime risk of acquiring ALS is about 1 in 300, by the age of 85.

ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) is a terminal progressive disease that causes muscle weakness, difficulty speaking and swallowing and, generally, complete paralysis.

ALS is scary. Really scary. But we’re here to answer your questions, provide encouragement and ensure you, and those you love, feel comforted and confident as you progress in your ALS journey.

The progression of ALS can mean tomorrow is often worse than today. As a result, people living with ALS may feel overwhelmed and unsure of what questions to ask and what to do next.

The Les Turner ALS Foundation exists to care for those affected by the disease, answer their questions, support them and their loved ones and provide hope through scientific research.

They treat each person like family, supporting them every step of the way, and provide their loved ones with answers and encouragement. The Les Turner ALS Center at Northwestern Medicine is led by the most well-respected and successful clinicians and researchers in the field, advancing vital care and research in pursuit of life-enhancing treatments and a cure.
