We know how destructive ALS can be. Help us change this disease from terminal to treatable.


axeALS Foundation was founded by Eric and Amanda Stevens after Eric was diagnosed with ALS at just 29 years old. Our mission is to raise awareness and funding for ALS treatments and clinical trials; to help ALS patients and their families live as full and normal lives as possible; and to encourage research for the prevention, alleviation, care, treatment, and (one day) cure of ALS.

No patient should be denied treatment because of a lack of funding. Our goal is to raise money for trials and treatments that would expand access for ALS patients. Eric is living with ALS, so we understand the importance and urgency firsthand. We want to give the patients a voice, and work together to axeALS! Join us as we fight to change this disease from terminal to treatable!


Eric Stevens was born October 1, 1989, in San Pedro, California. He grew up to be an accomplished professional athlete, fearless firefighter, and loving husband. Eric is now in the fight for his life, and for the lives of everyone affected by this disease.

As captain of the football team, Eric led the Bears at the University of California Berkeley to many victories during his time on the field. After graduating from Berkeley, Eric went on to play for the St. Louis Rams. While playing professionally is the dream of many athletes, Eric decided to hang up his helmet and return to Los Angeles to be closer to his family. In an effort to give back to his community and loved ones, Eric became a firefighter.
