After a valiant fight against ALS, Jamie Nelson passed away last week. We ask that you donate to the ALS Association of Georgia in his memory. Jamie was actively involved with the ALS Association of Georgia and was honored at their symposium in Savannah earlier this year. 

Since its founding in 1988, the ALS Association of Georgia has worked with ALS patients and their families to ensure the highest quality of life possible. The progression of ALS varies significantly from one patient to another. No matter a patient’s situation, the ALS Association of Georgia is available to provide vital services and reliable information.

Through the Patient Services Program, the ALS Association of Georgia employs Patient Services staff members who are available to ALS patients and their families from the time of diagnosis. The Patient Services staff assesses a patient’s needs, recommends equipment and helps families plan for the future.

The ALS Association of Georgia also offers a medical equipment loan program through which patients may receive items not covered by insurance, such as power wheelchairs, communication devices or shower chairs, etc. The ALS Association of Georgia delivers equipment to ALS patients and provides training for families.
