Fred Fights ALS with your help

Eight weeks after he was diagnosed with ALS in 2021, Fred Birnbaum, our inspiring partner, danced the night away at his daughter’s wedding. Soon after, he began the hard work of fighting the disease with the help of Sunnybrook.

Led by neurologists Dr. Lorne Zinman and Dr. Agessandro Abrahao, Sunnybrook’s ALS Clinic is the largest in Canada. The multidisciplinary team offers research-inspired personalized care. Patients like Fred help accelerate ideas into action – like the world-first clinical trial expected to launch soon to test the effectiveness of promising treatments. Fred spearheaded the launching of the Fred Fights ALS campaign with a goal of $50,000 and quickly raised more than triple from the extended network of the Miller Bernstein family.
