The Angel Fund is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting ALS investigations at the Cecil B. Day Laboratory for Neuromuscular Research, internationally recognized for its ground-breaking work in the fight against this devastating illness.
The Angel Fund was established in 1997 by Ginny Delvecchio, herself an ALS patient. Ginny knew ALS all too well: both her mother and her brother had died of the same illness. Ginny's spirit prevailed, however, and she worked tirelessly raising awareness of ALS and funds for research until the disease robbed her of the ability to do so. She died of ALS in August of 1998.
The Angel Fund has launched a campaign for businesses to join us in the fight against ALS. Your business can help raise money for ALS research. Click here to see how.

Bracelets for ALS

Are you looking for a special gift for someone and want to support ALS research?
Ellie Baynham, Katie Cook and their fellow DECA students from Nipmuc Regional High School in Upton chose The Angel Fund as their special project. The students wanted to create awareness and funds for ALS research. They are doing this in memory of David Odham who passed away after fighting a courageous battle against the disease.
According to Ellie, “We chose this project for the fact that ALS does not get the recognition it should have, and more awareness needs to be spread about the disease.”
The sea glass bracelets are handmade by Katie and you can purchase a one in green, blue, white, and brown sea glass for a great price of $7 each.
Contact them by email: jewelryforals@gmail.com or call Ellie at 508-244-9780.
We thank these students for their support of The Angel Fund.

ALS Breakthrough funded in part by The Angel Fund

The Angel Fund’s support of ALS research at the Day Lab at UMass Medical Center in Worcester, under the direction of Dr. Robert H. Brown, Jr. has helped fund a critical ALS breakthrough. The gene EphA4 is the center of the research that was discovered by a Belgium doctor, Dr Brown and other researchers. Dr Brown stated that suppressing EphA4 may be a new way to treat ALS.
