A special thank you to the people who attended our event and made it such a huge success! Their support, combined with the contributions, and the on-going commitment of our volunteers, enable us to continue our pledge to supply free-of-charge speech technology to the paralyzed victims of Lou Gehrig’s Disease, also known as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis or ALS. Founded in 1990, Voice for Joanie has been “bringing a voice to the voiceless” to nearly 1000 persons in Connecticut and nearby states who have been paralyzed and left unable to speak by ALS and other debilitating diseases. Without our supporters, Voice for Joanie’s life-changing work for ALS victims and their families would not be possible.
