Every morning, Kevin Gosnell opened his eyes and realized he had another day. Another chance to move his goal forward. Another opportunity to bring people together. Another 24 hours to motivate, inspire, build and plan for a future that wouldn’t include him.
In May of 2015, this 47-year-old husband, father of three and small business owner, was diagnosed with an aggressive form of ALS. After realizing there was no cure, and little that doctors could do to even treat his devastating condition, Kevin made a brave decision. To dig deeper. Ask questions. And use the resources, team building skills and relationships he had cultivated as a small business owner to create a new business. One committed to bringing the best doctors, researchers, and care practitioners together. To raising funds to fuel their efforts. And in the end, to finding a cure for ALS.
ALS ONE is an unprecedented partnership of world leaders in ALS research and care from Massachusetts General Hospital, UMass Medical Center, Harvard Medical School, ALS Therapy Development Institute, and Compassionate Care ALS. Together, they have joined forces on a shared Science Plan.
Together, through the sharing of ideas and division of responsibility, they have committed, with proper funding, to finding a treatment or cure for ALS by the year 2020, while improving the care now for those currently battling ALS.
