Welcome to ALS First Star

Smile With Me Forever and Ever: Even With ALS, by Kathleen Ellen, is a story of terminal illness, yet a beautiful affirmation of heartfelt relationships. This book is designed to help young children who love someone with ALS deal with the sudden physical deterioration and life changes. A gentle structure of guidance and communication is provided while the fear of loss is confronted. Encouragement is given through special memories, continued experiences, and believing that everlasting hearts will smile forever and ever. Gorgeous watercolor illustrations with affectionate animations and uplifting colors are created by Erin Ambrose.

Thank you for the honor of extending our heart to the ALS community.
