Purchase an ALS Pendant and give back! When you purchase a Colby Davis ALS pendant the Colby Davis Girls are giving $60 of each sale to the foundation. This pendant embodies the immense strength and courage that each person, family or friend holds who is affected by ALS. Engraved on the reverse, “Time is the most precious commodity in the world,” the designers wanted to show the world clock ticking away after a person is diagnosed with the disease.
When high schoolers Phoebe DeAngelo and Lillian Corcoran were thinking of what to do their final independent internship project on, the story of their friend’s father came to mind. Being close with Kevin Gosnell and his family, they wanted to help ALS ONE in their mission to find a cure by 2020 and collaborate with the Colby Davis Girls to do so. After creating a website on etsy and making friendship bracelets to pay for the manufacturing costs of the pendant, they raised enough money in three short weeks. Today they hope that with each pendant sold, Kevin’s mission will see fruition and help people worldwide fight this disease.

ALS ONE is a non-profit 501c3 and is a partnership of the world’s top ALS experts from leading Massachusetts institutions including ALS Therapy Development Institute, Massachusetts General Hospital, UMass Medical School, and Compassionate Care ALS. These venerable institutions are combining forces with the goal of finding a treatments or cure for ALS by 2020, while improving care now.
The approach of ALS ONE is to leverage the expertise from each of the research institutions through the share of ideas and responsibilities to advance each of the strongest therapeutic opportunities identified forward. Through the share of information, this partnership will help eliminate unnecessary duplication and expedite the path to find an ALS treatment. As the science and research efforts will take time and significant funding, ALS ONE is also working to improve care for persons living with ALS. For more information, visit www.ALSONE.org.
