Walk with us for Sissy!

Cynthia, Mom or Sis/Sissy she was so lovingly called was diagnosed with ALS at the age of 56. Without the help from the ALS Society of Newfoundland and Labrador we wouldn't have been able to keep her home during the course of her illness. After a 6 year battle, Sissy passed in the comfort of her home. She spent only 1 night in hosptial during the entire course of her disease. That would not have been made possible with the support provided by the society. 

Your support will help to:

  • create a better day-to-day reality for people and families living with ALS by providing community-based support throughout Newfoundland & Labrador - like home visits and support groups – as well as necessary medical equipment like hospital beds, wheelchairs, stairlifts and other items that increase safety in the home, at no cost to those who need them.
  • further scientific progress by investing in the ALS Canada Research Program, which funds promising ALS research. This program provides peer-reviewed grants to researchers whose work has the greatest potential to advance the field of ALS. There’s been more progress made in ALS research in the last five years than over the last century – we need to keep building on this momentum.

I wish to follow in mom's footsteps. As a dedicated community volunteer and a beautiful person inside and out, she would go above and beyond for anyone in need. Please consider donating to this cause so people like "Sissy" can be taken care of in the comfort of their home and families can have the support they need. Thank you!
