Giving Tuesday was on December 3, 2019. The MOFF Giving Tuesday campaign emphasized the urgency that the ALS disease state needs funding. Below are a few examples of how your donation can impact the ALS community.

  • ALS is an expensive disease and can cost up to $200,000.00 a year for a single ALS household.
  • There are currently over 170 individuals living with ALS on the Central Coast of CA.
  • It can cost up to $2 billion to develop a drug. This number gets inflated when it comes to ALS treatments because it is going to take gene therapy or a combination of several drugs to address the complexity of the disease.

The Martha Olson-Fernandez Foundation has funded ALS drug development efforts since 2014. Your support during Giving Tuesday is what allows us to provide financial support to families living in our area.

Thank You!
