One Man's Perspective Living With ALS
My Experience With ALS (So Far)
Written By: Bill KingAfter being seasonal Florida residents for over a decade, in December 2016 my wife, Rhonda, and I became full-time residents. I continued to work, which involved traveling back to Connecticut one week per month.
The Florida Chapter would like to thank Bill and his wife Rhonda for sharing their story with us.
Join us for a day of informative demonstration and sessions for people living with ALS, caregivers, healthcare professionals, and supporters of the ALS community. This unique event has something for everyone including numerous distinguished keynote speakers, a vendor fair, plenty of opportunities to "Ask the Experts," and a luncheon featuring guest speaker Richard S. Bedlack Jr., MD, PhD, MS, Neurologist from Duke Health.
We hope to see you there!

Did You Know You Can Support The Florida Chapter Every Time You Shop on Amazon?
Did You Know You Can Donate Equipment
to the Florida Chapter?
The ALS Association Florida Chapter greatly appreciates donations of durable medical equipment (DME), respiratory equipment, and communication devices for use in our Equipment Loan Program. We understand how expensive it is to care for a person living with ALS, and the importance of the equipment needed to provide the best possible quality of life.
We offer temporary loaner equipment, including speech generating devices, to Florida residents with a verified diagnosis of ALS who are uninsured, underinsured, who cannot access their insurance (while in a nursing home or hospice) or who are waiting for insurance approval.
CLICK HERE for more information about the types of equipment we are able to accept.
For equipment donations please contact our Care Services Department at 888-257-1717, ext. 118
The Florida Chapter will provide an acknowledgment letter to the donor for tax purposes once the donation is picked up by the DME companies that store and maintain our equipment throughout the state, Ability Medical Supply and NuMotion.
Testimonial from a person living with ALS: “This chair that I have made life so much easier for me. The slide board, it's just made a whole different difference. I’m able to go out in my yard. I'm able to not use the Hoyer lift, just things are so much easier making my life so much easier and so much easier on my wife. I don't know how I can put into words how much I appreciate all the help you guys have given me. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.“
Ability Medical Supply and NuMotion are the Official Equipment Loan Program Partners of The ALS Association Florida Chapter. They can assist you with all of your equipment needs.
