The ability to speak and to be understood, to eat like everybody else, and most importantly, to avoid those crushing symptoms of respiratory failure – that is what person with ALS is capable of achieving after some time working with a professional speech therapist. This is exactly the quality of life we strive to maintain in «Live Now» foundation.
Caring a patient with ALS is a hard work. Relatives really need to have the opportunity for a break. Here we fudraise to pay two substitute carers during one year. Each of them will help 5 families.
Since the Live Now Foundation was created, most of needs were sponsored by one major donor. Now he can’t support us. If we are unable to find funds in the near future, the ALS services in Moscow and St. Petersburg may be closed….
We fundraise money to buy lung ventilators for two patients with ALS who are in intensive care in Perm and Evpatoria. With the ventilators they will be able to get home.
