Facing a diagnosis of ALS can be very emotionally exhausting for the patient and family. Knowing where to turn to for information and support can be frustrating. The ALS Association Kentucky's monthly support group aims to provide not only emotional support, but also create a safe atmosphere to educate families and to help link individuals together who are living with ALS.
The Kentucky ALS Support Group is held virtually the 2nd Tuesday of the month at 6 p.m. EST/ 5 p.m. CST
