Nanci's words, "So I ask you all today to promise me that - no matter what - that you will never, ever give up. That is another thing that ALS cannot take away - our 'will' to keep going."
ALS is still here and continues to take our loved ones, family and friends. We will continue to fight and celebrate Nanci and her legacy as an unwavering advocate for ALS awareness, research, and comprehensive care.
Team Nanci is rallying for the ALS Golden West LA Walk to Defeat ALS. The Walk will take place on November 12, 2023 in UCLA’s Wilson Plaza beginning at 9am. We will have a Team Nanci tent in the VIP area with a hot breakfast, vendors fair, live entertainment, and more. The program begins at 10:00am and the Walk will follow.
Let's join together in Nanci's enduring memory by achieving her dream of raising $1 million in support of those living with ALS and those yet to be diagnosed with this unforgiving disease.Let's join together in Nanci's enduring memory by achieving her dream of raising $1 million in support of those living with ALS and those yet to be diagnosed with this unforgiving disease.

"I never intended to be courageous or inspirational, but according to this award apparently I am. So I ask you all today to promise me that – no matter what – that you will never, ever give up. That is another thing that ALS cannot take away – our will to keep going. Every one of you is essential in the search for effective treatments and cures. Thank you for all you are doing and will do to help”

WHY WE WALK - WE NEED YOUR HELP
Every 90 minutes a person in this country is diagnosed with ALS and every 90 minutes another person will lose their battle against this disease. ALS occurs throughout the world with no racial, ethnic, or socioeconomic boundaries.
That’s why we’re participating in the Walk to Defeat ALS®. To bring hope. To raise awareness. To provide resources and services to families free of charge. To help unlock the mystery of ALS and find the key to effective treatments and cures. Please join us.
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive, fatal neuromuscular disease that slowly robs the body of its ability to walk, speak, swallow and breathe. The life expectancy of a person with ALS averages 2 to 5 years from the time of diagnosis.
ALS can strike anyone. Presently there is no known cause of the disease, yet it still costs loved ones an average of $250,000 a year to provide the care people living with ALS and their families need.
