Suzanne Malveaux, an Emmy award-winning journalist and host of CNN’s Around the World and CNN Newsroom, will launch a three-part series about the current fight against amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. The series, entitled Fighting ALS, will run on Monday, July 1 through Wednesday, July 3 at 1:00 pm ET on CNN. The series chronicles her mother’s diagnosis and journey with ALS as well as the stories of ALS patient and former NFL player Steve Gleason, and Life Fitness Founder Augie Nieto. Dr. Jeffrey Rothstein, Packard Center founder and director, is featured throughout the three-part series providing the latest medical and research insights.

A companion website, www.malveauxmission.org, was established to accompany the series. The site was co-founded by Malveaux and the Packard Center to share the Malveaux story, educate people about the disease, share the latest treatments, technologies and research, and provide opportunities for people to make a gift to aid in research efforts.
