Let me share you an incident, ALS association was formed in 1985 and it totally national non-profit organization and this has been continuing doing research since 1985, but couldn’t find ALS disease cure, so in 2017, they were about to stop their research about this disease, however, Anthony came up with $50,000 and donated it to ALS organizing in order to continue the research. He did this because his father is even suffering from this disease and 2017 was a challenging year for his whole family but he hopes the association finds the cure soon and he will keep donating money to support ALS association.
