President's Message

Gilles Cloutier Phd


Since my first encounter with André Delambre, creator and director of the Foundation up to until his passing, a foundation which carries André`s legacy, I have come to realize that we all have a will to fight and the determination to carry on.

The battle is endless since it consists of Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) or most commonly referred to as Lou Gehrig`s disease.

As President of the Foundation, my mission is to follow in André`s footsteps, which represents an enormous challenge since the disease is not well known and is life threatening.

The Foundation`s program is to pursue André`s mission, the way he would have wanted us to, that is to support the patients afflicted with this disease together with their families and also to dedicate funds towards research and clinical trials leading ultimately to an effective remedy.

Above all, it is of the utmost importance to sensitize the public while informing them in a simple manner pertaining to the issues involved with this affliction.

Before pursuing our goal, I believe that it is essential to create links with several other foundations, agencies or institutions having the same mandate as ours and this with the purpose to create synergies so that we may all obtain our objectives.

Together, we will overcome this terrible disease!
