About Us

Mission Statement

The mission of the Windsor-Essex County ALS Society is to assist persons living with ALS and their families while contributing to research that leads to a cure.

Our organization focuses on the needs of people living with ALS in Windsor-Essex and Chatham-Kent counties. We help provide information and equipment to meet the many challenges that ALS can present, and we support the research of Dr. Michael Strong and provide Studentship funding every year. This website is remembered as a special vision of Rose Anne White and we dedicate this site to her. Special thanks goes out to Greg Underwood for the original creation of this site, and to Lou-Anne Hunt — for all of their help during the rebuilding of this site.

We also support research projects and provide funding for a Student Fellowship at the London Health Sciences Hospital under the direction of Dr. Michael Strong.
