Help our team create a world free of ALS in honour of my nan, Joanne Taniwa

On June 1st of last year, my nan (Joanne Taniwa) couragously took her last breath after living with ALS for 18 years.  My nan was the most determined, stubborn, silly, brave and caring woman.  I truly believe that her determination, stubborn personality and bravery is what got her through those 18 years, with a little help from her great grandson- Bennett- for the last 2.  Over those 18 years, we, as a family, participated in so many ALS walks.  I couldn't think of a better way to celebrate her life this year than to do the walk closest to me, in honour of her.  I know she would be so proud.

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 Ontario – 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. The ALS Canada Research Program is the only national dedicated source of funding for ALS research across Canada. 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.

Join our team in making a difference. Please consider donating to our team fundraising page as we work toward a world free of ALS.

Your support is needed now more than ever – we are stronger together!
