As you know, May is ALS Awareness Month, and this year, you will see a lot about advocacy and becoming an ALS Advocate. We are often asked what exactly this means, so we prepared a brief Q&A to help you understand how you can make a difference!
What does Advocacy mean?
It means stepping up for those who can no longer walk, speaking up for those who have lost their voices, and sharing your ALS story. While writing letters and meeting with members of Congress is part of this, all awareness is advocacy. Anytime you share your ALS story, you are helping to bring greater awareness to the disease and reminding people why we need their help to create a world without ALS.
