‘AELS’ is a charity action to raise money by selling a limited edition of 60 quince jelly jars, customized by three artists:
Edith Dekyndt, Michel François and Pieter Vermeersch.
The jars are sold on this website for 50 euros each.
All proceeds go to ‘A cure for ALS’.
Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis is a lethal neuromuscular disease. In some countries the disease is also called MND, Motor Neuron Disease. It is a non-contagious disorder of unknown cause. Sofar there is no successful treatment or prevention method known.
ALS is a progressive degeneration of the motor neurons in the brainstem and spinal cord. These neurons transfer stimuli from the brain, via the nerves to the muscles. Because these stimuli are not properly transferred any longer, the muscles do not function appropriately.
'A Cure for ALS' is the research fund of the ALS League, Belgium. Donations to the fund are spent entirely on scientific research.
