    Gregory W. Fulton ALS Center

    ALS and Neuromuscular Disease Experts in Phoenix, Arizona

    About the Fulton ALS Center

    In the spring of 1953, Ira A. Fulton met Mary Lou Henson on the Arizona State University campus through mutual friends. The young couple soon realized they were meant to be together and wed on June 26, 1954.

    From the beginning, their relationship was based on kindness, love, caring, giving, and faith. They had three children—Lorie, Gregory, and Douglas—and welcomed sixteen grandchildren and six great-grandchildren over the years.

    Gregory Wayne Fulton was born on July 7, 1958 in Phoenix and grew up in Tempe. From his early years, he loved sports and was an avid fisherman. Greg worked for his family’s two businesses: Eagleson’s Big and Tall and Fulton Homes. He had three sons: Daniel, Kevin, and Michael.

    In 2009, Greg was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). He fought a valiant battle but only lived three more years.

    “It was so hard, as his father, to watch him deteriorate a little every day,” Ira Fulton said. “We couldn’t save our son’s life, but we can help other people with the disease, and that is why we made the gift to build the Gregory W. Fulton ALS and Neuromuscular Disorders Center.”

    By establishing the ALS Center, the Fulton family honors Greg and reaffirms those values that have sustained them through the years: kindness, love, caring, giving, and faith.
