Lou Gehrig’s Disease New Mexico

ALS New Mexico is your primary resource for information and support related to Lou Gehrig's disease, in New Mexico. Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, more commonly known as ALS, is a devastating neurological condition that affects thousands of individuals across the United States, including here in New Mexico. Through our dedication to education, support, and advocacy, ALS New Mexico strives to empower those affected by ALS and their families with the knowledge, resources, and assistance they need to navigate this challenging journey.

What is Lou Gehrig's Disease?

Lou Gehrig's disease is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder that alters nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord. As these cells degenerate, voluntary muscle control is gradually lost, leading to weakness, paralysis, and ultimately respiratory failure. Despite ongoing research, the exact cause of ALS remains largely unknown, making it a particularly challenging disease to diagnose and treat. At ALS New Mexico we utilize our influence to help raise awareness and advocate for research in the fight against Lou Gehrig's disease.
