Welcome to ALS Insights.
Qualicare has been deeply involved with the ALS community since before our beginning. Over the years, we have developed a special sensitivity to those with ALS and their families. We’ve helped them from the life-changing diagnosis through the wrenching adjustments to living with this new reality. As difficult as this condition is, we have seen stories of courage and growth as families cope with and in some cases surmount the impact of this disease. We’ve been there.
The goal of ALS Insights is to reach out to those who are starting on the ALS journey and, in a small way, to provide information, comfort and strength through sharing stories and insights from ALS families and ALS professionals.
But it’s not just about ALS. These stories contain nuggets that we can all use as we keep up with life’s physical and emotional challenges.

The Story of "When You Whisper" #BeyondTheBucket
By: Sara Crabtree
I truly believe we wrote this song for a greater purpose. While it started with Felicia's story, I do not believe that is where it will end. This song was written to speak to and comfort those battling this debilitating disease. 1 out of every 50,000 people suffer from ALS. While the medical community is making scientific advancements, there currently is no cure. This song is for those dear people afflicted with ALS and for their families who are so lovingly taking care of them. I hope and pray this song brings comfort and strength to the wonderful souls on this tragic and heroic journey. Hold onto the little things, even the whispers. They are precious. Savor every moment with those you love. And remember that this life is not the end.
Please join me in sharing this song,
