The Mission of the axeALS Foundation
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!
axeALS is the community of love and support that surrounds Eric; the family, friends, and neighbors that are coming together to amplify the magic in every day, and bring awareness to ALS. axeALS is a series of benefit events that help fundraise money to cover Eric’s medical and travel expenses.
Team Stevens Nation
What is Stevens Nation?
Growing up, Eric’s friends used the term to describe the unbreakable bond between Eric, his three brothers, and close cousins. Over the years, and now more than ever, it’s the way we describe the community of love and support that surrounds Eric; the family, friends, and neighbors that are coming together to amplify the magic in every day, and bring awareness to ALS.
