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.
The top leaders, researchers, doctors and caretakers in ALS within Massachusetts, have joined forces to bring the strengths of their venerable institutions to an ambitious plan: to bring a treatment to persons with ALS within the next four years.
By collaborating to fund and develop a treatment, we will demonstrate our shared commitment to fighting ALS while also continuing to provide high-level care for those who have already been diagnosed.
