Why did you decide to work for Live Like Lou?
“Before finding Live Like Lou, I had little knowledge of ALS and the damage it causes in the lives it affects. After learning that the life expectancy following diagnosis is only two to five short years, I realized how crucial it is to spread awareness and create funding for finding a cure. It feels so fulfilling to be apart of an organization that directly impacts the lives of people living with ALS and their families, and I hope to see a day (very soon) where we find a cure!Arika Weil
