Our Mission

Serve & Support

Serving and supporting patients and families who have been affected by ALS is one of the primary goals of our foundation.  Our family, being one who has experienced the hopelessness of an ALS diagnosis, knows all to well of the need for support as they navigate through the progression of the disease of their loved one.  The Michelle Gargaro Foundation is founded on the basic premise of serving and supporting all who are dealing with ALS.

Please check out the “Events” menu to learn about the specifics of our efforts.  ALS patients and their families are encouraged to contact us with any specific needs that they feel that we may be able to help them with during their journey.

Advocate for & Empower

The Michelle Gargaro Foundation is committed to working to advocate for and empower those people and families who have been affected by ALS.  Along with our personal commitment to work tirelessly as advocates on all levels to help look for meaningful treatments and ultimately a cure for this dreadful disease, we also commit ourselves to do whatever we can to help empower ALS patients to be able to live purposeful and meaningful lives.  We will post timely information here to keep the public informed about efforts to make these goals possible.
