About The ALS Association
The ALS Association supports people living with ALS and their loved ones through localized care services and resources throughout the state of Tennessee. We leave no stone unturned in the search for the cure of this progressive neurodegenerative disease.
Our Chapter was established in 1987 as the Central Tennessee Chapter. In 2005, the Central Tennessee Chapter merged with the Mid-South Chapter in Memphis and the Tri-Cities Support Group and became a single corporation known today as The ALS Association Tennessee Chapter.
To discover treatments and a cure for ALS, and to serve, advocate for, and empower people affected by ALS to live their lives to the fullest.
The ALS Association is the only national not-for-profit health organization dedicated solely to the fight against ALS. As the preeminent ALS organization, The Association leads the way in research, care services, public education, and public policy — giving help and hope to those facing this devastating disease.
