Hello and welcome to Smile Inside, an accessible online non-profit agency that provides a variety of services for people with ALS (pALS). My name is Jeremy Van Tress, founder of Smile Inside. In 2017, after I was diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease, I recognized a need for telehealth counseling that all pALS could access regardless of their abilities and levels of functioning. Being that I have a masters degree and am currently enrolled as a doctoral student in social work, I am compelled to help my fellow pALS in any way I can. The term "Smile Inside" represents the potential for pALS to continue smiling [inside] despite the physical limitations they may encounter. I invite you to browse our website, and as always, Smile Inside, as often and as fully as possible.
Jeremy Van Tress, MSW
Whether you help through monetary donations, volunteering your time, or spreading our mission through word-of-mouth, thank you. We couldn't accomplish our mission to provide ALS counseling, advocacy and research for patients with Lou Gehrig's disease without the help of supporters like you.
We are dedicated to improving the lives of pALS and their families. Your contribution today helps us make a difference.
