Project A.L.S. and research against neurodegenerative disorders

Dana Laake and her special guest Valerie Estess will discuss Project A.L.S. and research against neurodegenerative disorders.

Valerie Estess, along with her sisters Jenifer and Meredith, founded Project A.L.S., which has revolutionized the way that science and medicine approach disease research. As Director of Research, Valerie motivates world leading scientists and clinicians to work aggressively, openly, and together toward a deeper understanding of ALS, and closely related Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and spinal cord injuries. In 6 years, Project A.L.S. has raised over $23 million for research. With her sister Jenifer, Valerie Estess authored the national bestseller Tales from the Bed. Jenifer Estess, a New York theater and film producer, was diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease) and passed away in 2003.
