Inside: From the Executive Desk - p2 | Sponsor Thank You - p3 | 2006 Events - p4&5 | Who we are - p6 Veterans & Advocacy - p7 | 2006 Donations - p8-10 | “4 for 4” — A Unique Way of Giving - p11 From the Executive Director... Pamela Rush-Negri 2006 was a wonderful year in The Rocky Mountain Chapter of The ALS Association. The love, generosity and dedication of so many helped to provide services and equipment to patients and families of ALS all over the Rocky Mountain Region. It is amazing to me how our supporters always come through to make sure we are able to give daily aid to patients and their families, to provide equipment that would be cost-prohibitive to most, as well as to offer up-to-date information and resources of help, all with a personal touch. We are truly grateful to have had the chance to make available this assistance. It also occurred to me that perhaps we should explain exactly what we provide, so those that help us might congratulate themselves on a “job-well-done” at making our jobs much easier over the past year. While we continue to search for answers to ALS, we are equally focused on doing everything possible to improve living for those fighting this disease. I have listed below our basic services in an effort to show how your generosity translates into help for our families of ALS. In the Rocky Mountain Chapter, we strive to meet the needs of ALS patients and their families by providing access to a wide variety of services free of charge including support groups, home visits, equipment loans, educational resources, and collaborative efforts to ensure patients receive the highest level of care possible.

Board of Directors: The ALS Association – Rocky Mountain Chapter is very fortunate and grateful to be under the guidance of such successful and dedicated business professionals.

We are excited to introduce three new members to the staff of The Rocky Mountain Chapter - Suzanne Schrag, Sally Vizas and Shawna Urbanski. Suzanne Schrag Sally Vizas Shawna Urbanski Patient Services Coordinator Development Associate Support Group Facilitator Suzanne’s background in Occupational Therapy and experience in assisting patients and caregivers in utilizing area resources, making recommendations for home safety and knowledge of adaptive equipment made her the perfect candidate for the Patient Services Coordinator position. We are thrilled that Suzanne decided to join the Rocky Mountain Chapter. Sally grew up with ALS in her family. Her own mother lost her life to the disease when Sally was only 13 years old. Sally’s personal knowledge of ALS and the effects it has on all concerned, coupled with her experience in fundraising and community networking made her the perfect addition as our Development Associate. Shawna is currently a full time student at the University of Denver, working towards her doctorate in clinical psychology. Shawna lost her mother to ALS over 4 years ago, and has been an active member of the Rocky Mountain Chapter since her mother’s diagnosis. We are happy that Shawna is lending her talents to the Denver support group.

Published reports reviewed by the committee showed that service men & women deployed in the Persian Gulf War of 1991 had up to twice the risk of developing ALS as opposed to the general population. Veterans from other eras also appear to have a greater risk, although more information needs to be gathered. One study reviewed by this team was conducted at Harvard University’s School of Public Health. It found that veterans who served in the military, regardless of era, are at an increased risk of developing ALS. These findings, if validated in other studies, will give the research community greater insight into the cause of ALS. Factors that may lead to the development of ALS are exposure to lead, pesticides or other environmental factors, use of alcohol or tobacco or extreme physical exertion. This report recommends additional high quality research to further investigate the connection between ALS and all military service as well as to examine the varying aspects of military service that may cause the disease. Thanks to former Secretary Anthony Principi’s policy to aid Gulf War veterans with ALS, ALS is considered a service-connected disease. It is not, however, considered a service-connected disease for other veterans diagnosed with ALS, even though initial research has shown elevated rates of ALS in all veterans. This supports the need for larger population based studies, and the ALS Association has been working with Congress to pass the ALS Registry Act (HR 4033/S 1353). This national registry of people with ALS would be established at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and would collect data about ALS that could provide insight into the causes of the disease. There is currently a National Registry of Veterans with ALS, which helps researchers to understand patterns of ALS among veterans and aids the VA in informing veterans with ALS about research studies they may be eligible to participate in. Any living veteran who has been diagnosed with ALS is encouraged to enroll. For more information or to enroll, call 1-877-DIAL-ALS (1-877-342-5257). For more information about this latest report or others, please visit www.alsaco.org, and click on the ‘ALS in the Military’ link under ‘ALS Advocacy’. — Leslie Ryan, Patient Services Director Lifespan Respite Care Act of 2006 W e are pleased to let you know that President Bush signed the Lifespan Respite Care Act of 2006 (HR 3248) into law recently. The legislation, which passed Congress on December 8, authorizes nearly $290 million in competitive grants to help fund state-based respite care programs. This is an important victory for people with ALS and their families and caregivers and will help ensure that PALS have access to quality respite services. The ALS Association has strongly supported the Lifespan Respite Care Act since it was first introduced in Congress more than four years ago by Reps. Michael Ferguson (R-NJ) and Jim Langevin (D-RI) and Senators Hillary Clinton (D-NY) and John Warner (R-VA). The bill has been a focus of our efforts at National ALS Advocacy Day and was the subject of a breakout session at the advocacy conference in 2005. In addition to Advocacy Day, ALSA has helped promote the legislation as an active member of the National Respite Coalition, via the Advocacy Action Center of our website and at Walk to D’feet events held across the country. In fact, ALSA advocates and Chapters sent thousands of letters to Members of Congress urging them to pass this vital legislation. It is clear that those efforts have made a difference! A number of additional legislative and regulatory steps must be taken in order to fully implement the new law and we will provide you with additional information as that process continues. Thank you to everyone for their hard work in support of the Lifespan Respite Care Act over the past several years. This is another victory for people with ALS and their families. 7 2006 DONATIONS W e gratefully acknowledge the following benefactors who generously made gifts / contributions to our chapter.
