Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) August 27, 2015
AskDoctorParker.com announced this week that plans to continue full support and fundraising efforts for The ALS Foundation is underway. As part of this year’s campaign, AskDoctorParker.com has pledged to help raise money that will go towards benefiting those diagnosed with ALS and will continue to expand its reach for this cause.
ALS was first found in 1869 by French neurologist Jean-Martin Charcot, but it wasn't until 1939 that Lou Gehrig brought national and international attention to the disease. Ending the career of one of the most beloved baseball players of all time, the disease is still most closely associated with his name. Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord.
“There are over 6,000 people diagnosed each year in the United States alone,” states Janae Brand, CEO of AskDoctorParker.com. “ALS has only recently started to gain more attention and awareness, and we are fully committed to supporting the cause.”
