Here's our (by no means complete) list of ALS related links to learn more about ALS and connect with the large, active online ALS community. If we missed any great sites, post a link in the comments and we'll add it to our list.
Kids Health ALS Page - Okay so yes this is technically for kids. But if you are learning about ALS or trying to understand how it works with little or no prior knowledge, it's a good starting point.
ALS forums - This is a great support blog for people with ALS and their close families and relatives. There are a lot of people telling their stories about daily living with ALS.
ALS Association - The ALSA is a non-profit supporting research into treatments and a cure for ALS. ALSA.org provides resources for finding local chapters of the group for support, information and news about ALS, links to ALS studies and more for healthcare professionals, and opportunities to get involved in the fight against ALS. You can also connect to the cause on Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, and Youtube.
