Before the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, very little was publicly known about ALS. Year after year, this debilitating disease continues to affect more and more families. ALS can be an extremely ruthless disease to battle for patients and their families. With minimal treatment options and no cure, it is imperative to invest in research and development to better understand this disease.

Dr. Raymond Roos of the University of Chicago has dedicated his career to ALS and other neurodegenerative disease research. He is also a physician with a comforting bedside manner that made Doug feel heard and respected as a patient. Steps for Doug believes in the work and dedication of Dr. Roos. As a result, throughout it's history Steps for Doug has donated over $100,000 to Dr. Roos at his University of Chicago ALS Research Lab. Steps for Doug continues to partner with him to further develop ALS treatment options for those currently living with ALS. He has committed his life to creating better outcomes for ALS patients through research.
