Thank you Senator Murkowski for urging awareness and research about ALS. Please consider supporting the efforts of the ALS community and others to stop CMS from limiting the access for people with ALS to Speech Generating Devices ("SGDs") and Eyegaze systems to access those devices. Communication is a basic human need and people with ALS need to be able to communicate both inside and outside their homes, with their medical and care providers, their families and their friends. SGDs and Eyegaze systems are not luxuries. They are necessities.
