"Until medicine proves otherwise, technology is the cure..."


The vision of The Dapper McDonald Charitable Foundation is to provide people with ALS (pALS) residences that are comfortable, bright, home-like spaces, where patients receive expert medical care in a community of warmth, support and camaraderie. These neurological GreenHouses, located at the Leonard Florence Center for Living (LFCL) in Chelsea, Massachusetts, truly extend residents' lives - fostering independence through the use of cutting-edge technology, continued engagement in the community and dignity in the face of misfortune.
