LMSdr has been a tremendous source of information, support, guidance, and realistic hope since I was diagnosed with this rare and aggressive cancer about a year ago. It hosts a wonderful worldwide FB page for people and their loved ones who have this diagnosis. It is well monitored and a tremendous source of information and support. LMSdr does everything possible to help people find a cure for this rare cancer, including identifying scientific research projects for financial support, helping people host fundraisers, organizing a tissue bank and blood samples for research purposes, hosting seminars, providing recordings of past seminars, the list goes on and on. I have contributed greatly to LMSdr, and have encouraged friends, colleagues, and relatives to do likewise. A tremendous percentage of what LMSdr collects goes directly to LMS research. Their expenses are low as the organization is completely volunteer-run. I simply cannot praise LMSdr enough!
