Our website is intended to offer comprehensive information about ALS/MND, about the ALS Society of Manitoba, information for people with ALS/MND and their caregivers, health care professionals, donors, media, and the general public. It is our hope that this site be a source of meaningful information, a site that connects people both from within and outside the ALS/MND community and a site that users visit regularly. Be sure to let us know if there is a way to improve this site, and make it more user friendly. We want to know!
