ALS of Utica was founded by Sherry DePerno in March of 2003 and is approved by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. All of the board and committee members are volunteers and receive no money for their time and dedication.
Our Mission: ALS of Utica is dedicated to raising awareness and improving the quality of life of patients battling ALS in Oneida and Herkimer Counties.
This organization was founded in memory of Carolyn DePerno (1941-1999). Carolyn lost her battle to ALS at 58 years old, just four months after being diagnosed.
