Banja Luka za ALS (Banja Luka for ALS)

The ALS Association of Republic of Srpska organized humanitarian concert “Banja Luka for ALS” to raise the awareness as well as funds to obtain non-invasive ventilators (NIV) for patients suffering from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). ALS is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord, leading to a gradual deterioration and loss of muscle function, resulting in the deterioration of one’s ability to control the muscles needed to move, speak, eat and breathe. When patients with ALS reach a phase where respiratory muscles function has deteriorated, non-invasive ventilators are required to assist them in breathing.
