Yesterday March 15, 2017, an Instagram message was circulated poising as a Walk for ALS event/campaign. This is a scam. The ALS Society of BC does not use Instagram. If you receive this message please contact the Anti Fraud Centre at www.antifraudcentre.ca to report this.
“Why have I been diagnosed with ALS when so many other people have not?”
This is an all-too-common question of people living with the devastation of an ALS diagnosis, and the ALS Society of Canada (ALS Canada) wants to help answer it. We are leading Canada’s fundraising efforts for Project MinE to support the mapping and analysis of up to 1,000 DNA profiles.
