For Indu Navar and Lisa Deegan – co-founders of Los Altos-based nonprofit EverythingALS – amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, is personal.

Both women have lost family members to ALS, which inspired them to launch the foundation last year to honor the legacies of their loved ones and prevent others with ALS from suffering the same outcomes. The Los Altos residents not only hope to accelerate treatments, but also the time frame for diagnosis of the disease.
