What is Winning the Fight Against Neurodegenerative Diseases (WFND)?

Winning the Fight is a mostly volunteer 501(c)3 non-profit organization that develops and studies nutritional therapies for ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis). We developed a metabolic program for ALS called the Deanna Protocol®  and scientific studies show that the program is indeed effective! We do not directly sell the nutritional supplements involved in the Deanna Protocol® and we make very little money when individuals purchase them. The money we do make is donated directly toward research to improve the Deanna Protocol®. In addition to improving the Deanna Protocol® for ALS, we also hope to eventually optimize it to target other neurodegenerative diseases (NDs) such as Alzhiemer's Disease, Parkinson's Disease, and Multiple Sclerosis. If you would like to support our research, please donate todayEven one cent will help!

In addition to designing and funding research, we also spend a great deal of time providing information and support to the ALS community and to those who are taking the Deanna Protocol®. We answer questions about the program and the supplements and assist PALS with finding retailers from which they can purchase the supplements. We also offer support and guidance to PALS in finding strength trainers, physical therapists, speech therapists, and any other types of medical professionals who work with individuals who have ALS. PALS have a lot of questions for us and we are here to help via email or Facebook!

 Organizational Structure: Volunteers and Paid Personnel

Our organization consist of a board of nine directors, a medical liaison, and several experts in the fields of neurology, all of whom are volunteers. The only individuals paid for their work for WFND are the scientists who conduct our research, one part time administrative assistant, and one part time freelance web developer who helps us resolve technical issues as-needed. If you donate to our organization, you can rest assured that the vast majority of your money will fund research to improve the Deanna Protocol ®! This research will help us lengthen and improve the lives of those with ALS!

Why do we work for free?

We believe in this cause! Our board members all have one or more loved ones with ALS. Two of our board members have ALS. We found something, the Deanna Protocol®, that allows us and our loved ones to fight ALS and actually have a chance at winning. We devote our free-time to sharing this with the world so that other PALS and their loved ones can have the same hope that we do. Some people spread hope by volunteering at homeless shelters, hospitals, soup kitchens, etc. We choose to spread hope by spending our evenings and weekends working for Winning the Fight and helping individuals with ALS fight the disease.
