ALS Ice Bucket Challenge Progress


Durable Medical Equipment Loan Program   

In 2011, a Durable Medical Equipment Program was launched in response to a bureaucratic system that kept people with ALS waiting for appointments with physicians, seeking referrals to Occupational Therapists, and waiting for insurance authorizations. Our program was designed to offer free durable medical equipment to meet the needs of people living with ALS at every level of progression. As a result, they now have access to the most pressing of DME needs at any time.
