ALSFAC WE CARE is led by Denis Rizzuto, whose wife Christie had ALS. Christie, a wife, mother, and friend to many, inspired all who knew her with her warmth, internal and external beauty and deep devotion to caring for others. In the spirit of Christie’s devotion, this endeavor will focus on caring for people with ALS (pALS) and their family members. Additionally, all members of the executive committee of ALSFAC are committed to both supporting cure research and those living with ALS today. It is the mission of ALSFAC WE CARE to provide grants to organizations that ensure pALS and family members receive the care they most desperately need with financial, equipment and emotional support.
