Dear Angel Fund Family,
As we reflect on this past year, we have renewed hope and strength to carry
forward our mission of finding a cure for ALS. We have accomplished a
great deal together, and it is with your support that we have raised millions of
dollars for ALS research while simultaneously raising awareness and lifting
the level of consciousness for thousands of people. Because of our joint
efforts, the Angel Fund Family is getting stronger in the fight to find a way to
end this insidious disease.
The Angel Fund for ALS Research is fiercely committed to helping fund the
research of Dr. Robert H. Brown, Jr. and his team, all of whom are key players

The Angel Fund board and I have been warriors in the fight against ALS for
more than 20 years, and, with your help, we’ve made a difference. I know
both sides of the battle – working hard to find a cure while also living with the
As a family, we have a common thread that weaves us together beyond our
commitment to fighting ALS. On behalf of the Angel Fund Family, the Board
of Directors, Advisory Board and others, we hope that you will join us in our
continuing fight to find a cure.
