On Thursday September 22nd our friends at Stella & Dot will be hosting a trunk show, where all net proceeds will be donated to Team Chris Combs and the Hope Gala to defeat ALS fundraiser.
Through Project ALS, these funds will benefit a specific research project conducted by Emily Rhodes Lowry, a post-doctoral fellow at Columbia University, who is using iPS and other stem cell models of human ALS in a new way to discover drugs of interest to patients. This research, along with the work Project ALS is doing with academic and drug company experts to identify drugs that might hit that pathway, will help us choose the best drugs for Chris to try immediately and could provide new options for other ALS patients.
Bring friends, spread the word, and shop early and often! There is hope, and now it’s time to find a cure.
