Thank you for your support

We are overjoyed for the love and support that Börje Salmings ALS foundation has received during the fall of 2022.

It was clear when the foundation was founded that the will and wish of Börje and his family were to support both ALS research and all those affected. And this work has now begun!

Let us together solve the mystery of ALS. No more shall suffer.

Thank you for your support!

Börje Salming

Börje Salming is one of Sweden’s greatest ice hockey players of all time and he had his breakthrough in Brynäs in the early 1970s. In 1973, Salming left Sweden for the NHL and Toronto, where during his 16 years he gained icon status.

Börje has recently struggled with his health. On August 10, 2022, he announced in a statement via the Toronto Maple Leafs that he had been diagnosed with ALS.

I have received news that shook my family and me. The signs I got that something was wrong with my body turned out to be ALS. Everything then changed at once. I don’t know how the future will be, but I understand that I will have to face challenges that are greater than those I have received before.

Help us in the fight against ALS

Today, there is no curative treatment for ALS. We want to change that. In order to get funds to realize the foundation’s objectives, we need to create the conditions for this, and we can do that together with generous private individuals and companies.

With this foundation, I want to fight ALS so that others will be spared this horrid disease.

For me, our foundation means a great deal. We want to draw attention to ALS and contribute to research to find a cure, as well as be a support for families going through the life crisis that ALS entails.

Our goal is to find a cure for this terrible disease for everyone affected and for their families to receive support and help. Healthcare needs to create a system for those affected, regardless of age, geography or needs.
