On March 13, 2012, Nancy Frate’s 27-year old son Peter was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Her family’s world changed in an instant. They were told there is no treatment or cure and his prognosis was 2 to 5 years. Since that day, Nancy has immersed herself in the ALS community as an advocate and a thought leader. 

In August 2014, Nancy’s son Peter along with their family members and supporters inspired the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge to go viral, raising $220 million for the ALS Association and its global partners. Since then, Nancy has been interviewed by numerous television stations, magazines, and websites about her mission. She also began speaking at events in the U.S. and internationally, sharing her son’s story and continuing the momentum her family created for ALS awareness, research, and treatment.


INS’ Annual Meeting can be an overwhelming experience for first-timers. To make the experience more comfortable and enjoyable for them, INS developed the Meeting Mentor program, which connects first-timers with long-time members and attendees, who provide guidance on how to navigate the meeting and network with others.
