Aaron Lazar is opening up about his diagnosis with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), and revealing why he’s not focused on trying to fight the disease for which there is no cure, but instead move through life with courage and hope.

The stage veteran — known for two decades of roles on Broadway and on tour in musicals like The Light in the Piazza, Dear Evan Hansen, Les Misérables, A Little Night Music and The Last Ship — went public in January with the news that he had the progressive neurogenerative disorder, after being diagnosed two years ago.

Please join us on Thursday, March 7 for ASK ME: ALS Network Town Hall at 5:00pm PST / 3:00pm HST. During this informative evening, you will learn about the future of the newly rebranded ALS Network (formerly The ALS Association Golden West Chapter). 

You will hear from Sheri Strahl, ALS Network’s new president and CEO, about her vision for the organization moving forward. We will also be joined by some special guests, including Aaron Lazar, actor, singer, and 2024 Essey Spotlight Award recipient who is living with ALS and using his personal experiences to share messages of hope, healing, courage, and resilience.

Joining the program will be David Buseck and Karen Sutton, ALS Network Board Members and people living with ALS. In addition, audience questions will be addressed, so we look forward to our ALS community participating!
