Living Proof Speakers

Impact in their own words

There’s no better way for people to connect with a cause than by hearing from someone whose life was changed because of it.

Our Living ProofTM speakers’ series presents the real-world stories of individuals who have been affected by chronic disease or serious illness, either directly or through a personal connection.

Living Proof of Donations At Work

In 2011, after 11 long months of testing, Alain Bérard received the devastating diagnosis: Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). Alain was 45 years old. “The news from the neurologist left me, my wife and two children reeling. It is, after all, a death sentence,” says Alain.

The ALS Society has been an invaluable resource for me and my family, providing us with both psychological support and information about the disease.” - Alain Bérard, living with ALS.
