Documentary Updates: Li Qiao Untitled Documentary - post production The Dan Ellis Project - completed

12/10/2015

Dear Say True Films and
DGE Inspired Film,

There has never been a more exciting time when it comes to ALS research. We are committed to finding treatments to help slow or stop this disease. Progress is being made, thanks to your support.

In 2011, scientists funded by The ALS Association identified the most common genetic cause of ALS: C9orf72. Over the last few years, researchers have continued to make discoveries around the biology of this irregularity.

Within the last month, scientists have made exciting advancements. In one study, scientists used fruit flies to determine that abnormal protein production damages neurons in the most common genetic form of ALS. And two independent studies found that a key driver of the development of ALS due to this mutation is an export-import imbalance between the cell’s nucleus and its non-nuclear portion, or cytoplasm.

What does this mean for people with ALS? When we understand more about the biology of this mutation, we can develop strategies to target the disease process.

Leveraging this promising new knowledge about C9orf72, The ALS Association has partnered with several pharmaceutical companies to invest in drug development. If we know how ALS disease progression works, we can develop drugs to target it and, hopefully, slow or stop it.

To do that, we need your continued support.

Most of the ALS ice bucket millions is going into research for a cure...and the rest into other "buckets". We also stay committed to being a part of the ALS challenge, so Say True Films has recently submitted their award-winning film, "Dan Behind His Eyes", to children and teen film festivals around the world that are screening films focused on art, music, inspiration, life challenges, courage and hope. It would be so fulfilling to introduce Dan and Gina to them~

Dear Say True Films and DGE Inspired Film- Dan Behind His Eyes,

What an incredible year it has been! With your support, The ALS Association is coming closer than ever to discovering effective treatments and the cure for ALS. For that, I cannot thank you enough.

Thanks to your help, we are leaders in the fight against ALS – from funding the most cutting-edge scientific research projects, to delivering personalized care of people and families living with the disease, to initiating public policy efforts that increase federal and state support of research and care. We recognize that none of this would be possible without your help and generosity, and we're so grateful.

Please continue to stand with us in solidarity by sharing our thank you video with your friends, family, and social networks. We want everyone to know how much their support has meant to us this year and how much hope they have given to everyone affected by ALS.
Happy Thanksgiving!

Kim Hanna
