NEW ORLEANS – June 26, 2014 – Zofia Consulting was side-by-side with Team Gleason as they rolled out their inspirational global effort to end Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS).

Answer ALS is a tremendous undertaking and our goal is to secure a minimum of $125 million annually for 5 years. We believe that through a massive assault on this disease, we can have solutions in the foreseeable future. “Tens of thousands of people die every year from ALS. That is not ok.” Said Steve Gleason. “If we are to change the course of this disease, we must be bigger than it is. The price tag for this effort will be over $500million dollars,” Steve continued. “But, we believe that if we commit to this effort, on this scale, we will have meaningful results in our lifetime.”

Zofia Consulting is a proud partner in this effort and we are ready to help ANSWER ALS by working with the leadership team to build out and implement the strategy which will lead to individualized therapeutic options for people with ALS. Answer ALS will also launch a new collaborative governance plan, a plan to turn out more innovation in technology and assistive technologies, and provide a solid platform for patients and caregivers now and into the future.

With Team Gleason, our next steps are to connect with ALS stakeholders, individuals and organizations to create the Council to begin the first phases of this effort. Additionally, the goal is to raise the funds needed through private donors rather than creating a campaign.

Mohammed Ali once said, “Impossible is just a big word, thrown around by small men, who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given, than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It’s an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It’s a dare.”

I am daring those capable individuals to change the world we live in. I’m daring the world to step up and help solve ALS. – Steve Gleason, June 2014
