The traditional spring meeting and picnic of ALS patients held in Izmir, which is third major city of Turkey.
This activity, which the patient and his / her relatives meet, is being used for moral purposes and to strengthen relationships with their life. Also, the patients and their relatives are informed about the latest treatment options.
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Motor neurons reach from the brain to the spinal cord and from the spinal cord to the muscles throughout the body. The progressive degeneration of the motor neurons in ALS eventually leads to their death. When the motor neurons die, the ability of the brain to initiate and control muscle movement is lost. With voluntary muscle action progressively affected, patients in the later stages of the disease may become totally paralyzed.
