ALS Facebook Groups


Facebook Groups

Bryan “BWayne” Galentine was an incredibly compassionate and loving person. Throughout his experience with ALS, BWayne radiated positivity and warmth. He was driven to ensure that every person impacted by this disease were aware of the community support available to them. We honor and remember him through this resource increasing transparency of the social media communities available to support those impacted by ALS.

The ALS community is filled with spaces, both physical and virtual, set up to support you as you navigate being impacted by ALS, including Facebook groups. Facebook groups can be overwhelming. We have created this resource to help you explore which groups may be a good fit for you as a person living with ALS, a caregiver to someone with ALS or a loved one navigating ALS. The information posted in Facebook groups does not represent the views of I AM ALS and has not been verified by us. Please discuss questions and decisions related to your diagnosis and medical care with your health care team.
