Neil and Suzanne Alexander established LiveLikeLou.org in 2011 when Neil was diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), the devastating condition known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. Through this fund they hope to raise awareness of ALS, provide care and comfort to ALS families in Western Pennsylvania, and support scientific research targeted at finding a cure. The fund was named for baseball great Lou Gehrig to honor the example he set for all people living with ALS. Thank you for your support! LiveLikeLou.org is a fund of The Pittsburgh Foundation. We would like to thank our 2014 corporate sponsors for their generosity in supporting LiveLikeLou.org.You may give to LiveLikeLou.org via check. Please send your check to:
