Send an e-Card to Your Favorite Caregiver

In celebration of National Family Caregivers Month, the ALS Association wants to extend an electronic thank you to the more than 65 million people who serve as caregivers.

The organization is inviting people to thank a caregiver by creating and sending a customized online e-card through the ALS Web site. (Click here to send a card.)

"The needs of people with ALS are extensive, and caregivers are often family members who fill this crucial role for their loved one who is often struck by the disease in the prime of life," said Jane H. Gilbert, president and CEO of the ALS Association. "On behalf of the ALS Association I want to personally thank each and every caregiver who selflessly gives of themselves to take care of others."

Caregivers can also get tips and information on coping at the ALS caregivers’ online resource page.
