Adrenoleukodystrophy, or ALD, is a rare genetic disease that, in its most devastating form, destroys the coating of nerve fibers in boys' brains. Without that coating, called myelin, the neurological system breaks down. The disease typically strikes between the ages of 4 and 10, leading to blindness, deafness, dementia and loss of muscle control, and killing them within a few years.

The goals of the ALD Foundation are to raise awareness of ALD and AMN, help the families affected by these diseases, and support the researchers looking for a cure.
