Our Mission: To find a cure for ALS by funding progressive research and in the process create a new methodology for funding, researching and developing treatments for ALS and other neurological disorders.

Your Gifts at Work

Make a Difference this Holiday Season  We all know that finding cures and treatments for neurological disorders is extremely urgent. Your generosity and continued commitment supports ongoing projects of our dedicated Hope Center doctors and scientists who are making progress in the fight against all neurological disorders every day.

You can help people with neurological disorders by making a tax-deductible gift. Donate online or mail your contribution to our office. Any amount you feel comfortable giving is deeply appreciated. With your support, we can provide hope today in the lives of people with neurological disorders.

Shout Out For Hope -
Join a Movement for Treatments and Cures

Everyone knows someone who has experienced a neurodegenerative disorder—ALS, Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, Huntington's, Epilepsy, Multiple Sclerosis, brain and spinal cord injury, Cerebral Palsy, Muscular Dystrophy, stroke, and many more. We share that bond of knowing someone. Now we share hope. Our hope is to control these disorders by finding treatments and cures

Like us, these disorders are also connected. When scientists collaborate and discover breakthroughs for one disorder, that success can lead to treatments and cures for another... and another... That's why we have a reason to rise, a reason to collaborate, a reason to start a movement, a reason to hope. We call this movement Shout Out for Hope

See this Shout Out from our supporter, Lori Schneider, who empowers those living with MS:

Thank You for Taking the Ice Bucket Challenge!

We would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to all who took the #IceBucketChallenge and contributed to Hope Happens for Neurological Disorders or posted their video on the Shout Out for Hope app. We are truly grateful for your gifts as well as your help in spreading awareness! Together, we can #strikeoutALS.


We would like to thank all the friends of Hope Happens for Neurological Disorders who have made the 10th Annual Evening of Hope possible. This year's event was the most financially successful Evening of Hope to date and raised more than $240,000 for the Hope Center. We hope that those of you that could join us enjoyed the evening and the performance by the Marcus Roberts Trio.

The Summer newsletter is now available for viewing and download and reviews some of the highlights of the annual gala. Just click on the picture to the right to view the current issue of Hopelines.

We were thrilled that Dr. William Peck, MD, former Dean of the Washington University School of Medicine, accepted this year's Spirit of Hope Award and we are grateful for his instrumental role in the partnership between Hope Happens and Washington University.
