"As a person battling ALS today, I wish to thank Congressman Capuano for his stand against this disease.  The attention and funding that he has helped to bring to this killer has brought new researchers, new ideas and frankly renewed hope that people like me will one day truly have the chance to fight this disease back," said Augie Nieto, chairman of the Board of ALS TDI.

The award will be presented during the Institute's annual gala event, A White Coat Affair, to be held at the Hotel Marlowe in Cambridge, Mass.  The Congressman will be recognized during a special ceremony being organized by ALS TDI.  Additional information is available online at http://www.als.net/whitecoataffair or by calling 617-441-7205.  The Lou Gehrig name is used with the permission of the Rip Van Winkle Foundation.  

"Time and time again Congressman Capuano has shown that he understands the hardship faced by those living with Lou Gehrig's disease today.  Congressman Capuano's support of ALS TDI's unique approach has inspired others in Congress to join together in a focused effort to fund this groundbreaking and crucial research.  This is a cause that he has championed and we are honored to recognize him for his leadership and persistence on behalf of patients today," said Steve Perrin, Ph.D., CEO and CSO of ALS TDI.
