From the Wings Family to your Family, Healthy & Happy New Year!

While 2012 did not bring us the cure for ALS that we all hoped for, advancements in research, new collaborations, and increased awareness helped keep the fires of hope burning brightly for all of us.  

Sandy's wrath devastated a large part of the Northeast, and loss and rebuilding have become the watchwords of the day.  In the ALS community, loss and rebuilding of lives without loved ones continued as well.  We offer our thoughts and prayers for all those affected.

2013 is almost upon us, so all of us at Wings want to wish all of you the healthiest, happiest, and most prosperous of New Years.  We thank you from the bottom of our hearts, for all your support and generosity.  Please stay with us as we continue, with hope, passion, commitment, and love, fighting against ALS until effective treatments and a cure are found.

Finally, there is still time to make a last minute tax-deductible donation to fund ALS research: Donate Now!

Happy New Year!!!!!
