Dear Partners,
Like you, we believe in The ALS
Association Greater Philadelphia
FOR the past four years,
ALS patient Arlene Gordon of
Downingtown, PA has traveled to

ter, Deanna, and husband Jeff. In Chapter Mental Health Nurse, Jennifer
Klapper in Washington, DC.
a city known for complex policy
making, Arlene’s position is very simple, “I felt compelled to take
the message of needed funding for ALS research to our elected
officials on Capitol Hill for all of the ALS patients who are not able
to do so,” says Arlene. She has met with the offices of US Representatives Chaka Fattah, Jim Gerlach and Bob Brady. Arlene went to
DC to say, “I have ALS and I need your help...” not easy words.
We look ahead to advances in
care, and ultimately a cure. We
will continue to work with our
government for legislation to help
ALS families. Our comprehensive
Clinics, vital services and programs
will never be compromised. One
Bright Future - that is our mutual
goal. Thank you for making it
In 2010, our Chapter sent over 55 people, including 11 people with
ALS to Washington DC as part of the annual Advocacy Day and
Public Policy Conference. Advocates met with 22 legislators representing our service area. Advocacy efforts in recent years have been
enormously fruitful as evidenced by these accomplishments:
• Persuaded Congress to enact the ALS Registry Act and secured
nearly $16 million in continued funding;
• Advocated for historic regulations at the Department of
Veterans Affairs that make ALS a service connected disease,
providing military veterans and their survivors access to more
than $130 million in health and disability benefits in 2009
• Received continued funding for the ALS Research Program at
the Department of Defense through a $7.5 million appropriation in FY2010. A total of nearly $18 million has now been
provided to the ALSRP, which is specifically designed to identify
new treatments for ALS; and
• Secured appropriations of $5 million over two years to fund the
Lifespan Respite Care Act, which we originally helped to pass
in 2006 and will support state-based respite care programs to
assist family caregivers. •O
N the local level, The ALS Association’s two Pennsylvania
Chapters received funding of $325,000 for 2010 from the
PA Department of Health to
be used to help people with
ALS across the state. Representative Josh Shapiro, along
with Representative Dwight
Evans, was instrumental
in securing this important

ALS Patient Services Program
Keeping the Promise of Care
You help support $3 million in services and
programs for patients each year
ON ANY GIVEN DAY, 14 people will be told,
“You have ALS.” And with this debilitating diagnosis,
a daughter in Williamsport, PA will wonder how she
will care for her mother. A grandfather in Harrisburg
plans out how he can maneuver in his home. A
family in Seaside Heights, NJ discusses how their
lives will change. Since 1984, these issues and
many more have been carefully addressed by The
ALS Association Greater Philadelphia Chapter.
Services from in-home care…to accessibility… to
comprehensive care in our clinics are free of charge.
Your contributions assist more than 850 ALS families
served by the Chapter.

Patient Care
ALS Certified Centers
At each center, patients and caregivers meet with up to 12 specialists. The Clinics are multidisciplinary centers for the evaluation and
treatment of ALS and related disorders. Clinic professionals establish
a definitive diagnosis in patients referred for the disease and then
provide care in a supportive environment which will enable patients
to attain the best possible level of neurological functioning and quality of life. There were 770 patient
visits to The ALS Association
Certified Center at the Penn
Comprehensive Neuroscience
Center at Pennsylvania Hospital
and 488 visits to the ALS Center
at Penn State Hershey Medical

There were 2 clinical studies
enrolling patients in Hershey
and 6 studies enrolling patients
at Penn.

Centers: We also provide
support for two additional
clinics in our service region.
One is located at the Lehigh
Valley Hospital and the other
at Geisinger Medical Center.

The Lea R. Powell Program offers an array of educational, recreational, patient care, family assistance and
outreach programs for ALS families.
Home Care
The Chapter funded nearly 20,000 hours of in-home and
respite care last year.
• The Howard I. Abrams In-Home Care Program
provided up to 10 hours of weekly care for patients
living at home. 90 patients were served with 18,511
hours of care.
• Respite Care Programs offered caregivers of 32
patients a total of 854 hours for non-ventilator
patients. Additionally, 8 ventilator - dependent
patients received a total of 487 hours of care.
The Marjorie Shimer Equipment Loan Program loaned
a total of 496 items including wheelchairs, hospital beds,
bath benches and other durable medical equipment
throughout our entire service area.
This is why the Mackler program is so important. We
provide devices to people who do not have insurance, or
are living in nursing homes, or are on hospice and whose
insurance will not fund communication devices.
Alisa Brownlee , the Assistive Technology Specialist
(ATP) speaks frequently about the state of this field for
The ALS Association and conducts in-service educational
programs for healthcare professionals. She is one of eight
Chapter AT Specialists. In her capacity with The ALS Association, Ms. Brownlee initiated an “Ask the Expert” button
on our website and in 2010, over 250 inquiries to Alisa
from patients, families and allied healthcare professionals
regarding Assistive Technology were made. She orchestrated
11 Web-Ex presentations for people with ALS and their
families covering such topics as help with reading, calling
for help, computer access for patients and home and van
The Cox Family Fund for Accessibility assisted 66
patients with a total of 27 stair glides, 27 ramps, and 12
emergency call systems at no cost or reduced cost to them.
The Scott A. Mackler, MD, PhD. Assistive Technology
Program addresses our patients’ assistive technology needs.
An annual run/walk in Dr. Mackler’s name raises about
$50,000 each year for the Chapter.
People with ALS have many assistive technology needs
including power or manual wheelchairs, communication
devices, computer access equipment, specialty phones,
and other electronic devices that will enable patients to
control their environment. These also include simple
devices such as television controls.
Many insurances cover mobility and communication
devices as a medical necessity under their durable medical
equipment policy. However, computer access equipment,
specialty devices that allow patients to stay connected to
the world, are not considered medically necessary
and our ALS families
either have to pay out of
pocket for these devices
or borrow them from the
ALS loaner program.

“Through technology intervention
all things are possible.”
“The joy that this adaptive equipment has brought
me is immeasurable! It continues to allow me to be
communicative, creative and independent”
Greg Telthorster
Transportation Program
The Chapter’s three wheelchair-accessible vans made a total of
150 runs during the last fiscal year, transporting patients and their
caregivers to medical appointments and recreational visits. Vans
are ventilator accessible. The Chapter subcontracts wheelchair
accessible transport for patients living outside a 60-mile radius
from the main office in Ambler, PA.
ALS Van Driver Thomas Mitchell
transports Goldie White of Philadelphia
to the Penn Clinic for her appointment.
Inservice Programs
Educational In-service Programs were provided by staff
to assist healthcare workers caring for ALS patients on 35
occasions. In one program shown here at Aristocare in
Plymouth Meeting, PA, nurses, aides, social workers and
other healthcare professionals learned about ALS so that
they could better assist the two ALS patients living at this
facility. Speech, assistive technology, medications, and
eating and breathing issues were addressed to help improve
the quality of life for our patients.
The Greater Philadelphia Chapter is proud to offer
the comprehensive ALS Patient and Caregiver Resource
Manual, which provides detailed ALS-related information
for those living with ALS with an emphasis on local services
and resources. One copy of this manual is available at no
charge to ALS patients and families in our service area.
Additional copies, as well as copies for medical professionals,
are available at our cost.
Resources and Seminars helped patients and their
caregivers better understand and cope with the diagnosis of
ALS. Programs included 4 Managing ALS teleconferences
with a record total of 140 people participating. Additionally
4 Newly Diagnosed programs, 13 Monthly Resource
Groups throughout the region and 1 Bereavement Group
provided an opportunity to address questions and concerns
and share experiences with others. NEW! This year a special
group for Women With ALS was established and a group for
Gail Houseman, RN, CNS, BC (right rear in red) and Susan Schwartz,
ACSW, LSW (to Gail’s left) facilitated the Aristocare Program.
Husbands of Women with ALS now meets bi-monthly. All
resource groups are free of charge for patients, caregivers
and family members.
A new Chapter website, The Woman’s Voice is a place
where women with ALS can help each other as they share
their wisdom and listen to each other’s concerns, particularly concerns relating to human connections, nurturing
and family that are often a central focus for women.
Recreational activities become very important to
those with limited movement and respite for caregivers
in the form of a fun, relaxing endeavor is essential.
Programs included ALS family trips to Longwood
Gardens with 78 attendees. 83 PALS and their families
visited Morey’s Piers in Wildwood, NJ and the Annual
Holiday Party drew 183 guests who enjoyed music by
Hot Hot Hot Entertainment, caricatures, balloon art,
henna tattooing, food, fun gifts and games.

Nurturing the Nurturer
63 caregivers attended this day designed for the
relaxation of caregivers. They arranged flowers, beaded,
received massages and hot shaves, learned how to
apply makeup and engaged in cake decorating classes.
Visiting Volunteer Program
Established in 2002, this program provides a “friendly
visitor” to a person with ALS in his/her home to read
books, share common interests, write letters, run
errands, make phone calls, use computer software
and more. This past year, the Chapter was fortunate to
have 23 active Visiting Volunteers visiting 30 patients

ALS Research Update
In fiscal year 2010, ALS research took giant steps forward.
ALS Association sponsored Research was conducted
around the world, in many cases with our Chapter’s dollars.
New genes, discoveries and technologies are being used to
ultimately uncover more effective treatments.
The ALS Association partners with the National Institutes
of Health, the Department of Defense, biotechnology and
pharmaceutical companies and other ALS organizations on
innovative research.
Studies are concentrating not just on the motor neuron
as the culprit of ALS, but on astrocytes and glial cells that are
outside of the motor neuron and may be impacting the motor
neurons environment.
Clinical trials were an important part of the ALS pipeline to
the cure. These included:
• Phase 1 trial using antisense treatment to turn off the
SOD1 gene.
• Phase 2 trial using Knopp-Biogen drug
• Phase 2 trial of Ceftriaxone
• Phase 1 trial of transplantation of stem cells into the
spinal column
Right here at home, a study at the University of Pennsylvania identified a new genetic risk factor—and interaction
between ataxin and TDP-43.
Further away, but just as important, an ALS Association
funded Genome Study in Finland identified Chromosome 9
as a link to ALS.
“ I am privileged to represent the ALS
community as the consumer member on
the ALSRP Integration Panel. I have seen
firsthand the dedicated work of these
prominent researchers and clinicians. The
projects selected are of the highest quality
and designed to conduct innovative
preclinical research to develop new
treatments for ALS.”
Ellyn Phillips
Chapter President and DOD’s
ALS Consumer Advocate
In December, The ALS Association hosted the 21st international ALS/MND Symposium in Orlando Florida. This conference brings together the world’s greatest minds focusing on
ALS to share information.
More researchers are entering the ALS field, optimistic that
they can unravel the mystery of ALS.
Mary Kelly, MSN, RN, CRNP comforts ALS patient
Charles Zimmerman* who succumbed to ALS in 2011.
It’s about compassion.
It’s about you.
You are not waiting for
changes. You are making
them happen.
Thank you for being the
force behind these
Chapter Events.

The Walk to Defeat ALS® was launched in 1999, and is The ALS
Association’s largest nationwide fundraising event. It is designed to
raise money to find a cure for ALS and to increase awareness of
the disease. The Walk to Defeat ALS® has grown, with 150,000
participants nationwide raising more than $18.5 million each year
to support the year-round work of The ALS Association.
The Rehoboth Beach Walk to Defeat
ALS® attracts a huge crowd.
The ALS Association, Greater Philadelphia Chapter
Regions Served
In our region, the event continues to be a milestone in our
community‘s effort to combat this devastating disease. Since its
inception, Walk to Defeat ALS® participants and sponsors have
made this event a powerful and effective response to ALS. Held in
locations throughout our service area, the Walk to Defeat ALS®
empowers patients, friends, families, and the business
community to do something about a disease that leaves many
feeling powerless.
The Walk to Defeat ALS® raised over $1.26 million for our
Chapter in fiscal year 2011. The Walk is recognized as one of the
most cost-efficient fundraising events in the United States: $0.91
of every $1 raised goes to support global research and patient
service programs.
