Together We’ve Raised:
Featuring Dr. John K. Kim, Reflections from Bob, new Barn Party, and Hebrew Day School youth philanthropy.
A two-year grant from the James A. and Faith Knight Foundation will support our first paid Program Administrator.
We toured the busy lab of Dr. Sami Barmada whose team is taking on ALS with cutting edge research.
There is currently no effective treatment or cure for ALS. There is a single medicine, Riluzole/Rilutek,that extends survival only 2 to 3 months.
