About Our Founder
The founder Joanna Rosenberg has had personal experience with the disease ALS. During the period after her mother was diagnosed and began losing her ability to speak, she and family members faced the challenges of communicating with her and managing the tasks of daily life. The mission since then is to build an intuitive and customizable solution that helps both patients and their caregivers to communicate and stay connected throughout this difficult period.
Organizations Doing Great Things
Established in 1985, The ALS Association is the only national non-profit organization fighting ALS on every front. By leading the way in global research, providing assistance for people with ALS through a nationwide network of chapters, coordinating multidisciplinary care through certified clinical care centers, and fostering government partnerships, The Association builds hope and enhances quality of life while aggressively searching for new treatments and a cure.
The NEALS mission is to translate scientific advances into new treatments for people with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) and Motor Neuron Disease (MND) as rapidly as possible. NEALS was founded in 1995 with 9 academic clinical centers in the New England area. With help from The ALS Association’s TREAT ALS Network, Muscular Dystrophy Association, and our generous donors, the NEALS membership has grown to over 100 research centers committed to performing research in ALS and MND.
The Leonard Florence Center for Living (LFCL) is a skilled nursing facility with thirty rooms devoted to individuals diagnosed with ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) and MS (multiple sclerosis). As the first urban Green House® skilled nursing facility in the country, the Center sets the stage for a model of care far removed from traditional nursing homes. Today, the Leonard Florence Center takes care of more individuals living with ALS under one roof than any place else in the world.
