“ALS are three letters that will change a person’s life forever… Today, it’s a battle you cannot win. When I was 15 years old, my mom started losing her balance, and one year later she was diagnosed with the disease. Four years later, when I was 19, she passed away and my world turned upside down. That was more than a decade ago. Researchers have come a long way since then, but we are not over the finish line yet. Until there is a cure, we all need to battle together. This night is about how far we’ve come, and more importantly how far we have left to go. This night is about continuing the fight for a future where ALS is a battle you can win.” — Frida Backlund
