More about Pete and Pete Frates Family Foundation:
This is the man who inspired the Ice Bucket Challenge. The success of which led to new treatments and drugs to help combat ALS, but as lifespans are increased, the cost and burden of caring for ALS patients is increasing. Very little of the money raised for ALS during the Ice Bucket Challenge went to the actual care of patients. So we created the Pete Frates Family Foundation in support of the tens of thousands of patients living with ALS today.
The Pete Frates Family Foundation is a grant-based foundation that will help ALS patients live at home, close to their loved ones, in as comfortable an environment as possible. Please consider donating today, so that ALS patients like Pete can live as long as possible with their loved ones. Thank you all for your kindness and consideration.
