Even though it's been nearly two decades since Julianna Margulies rallied her ER costars to attend one of the first Project A.L.S. events after the actress's close friend Jenifer Estess was diagnosed with the disease, Margulies is more passionate than ever about finding a cure.
"They told Jennifer when she was diagnosed, the doctors all said, 'Just go max out your credit cards because it's over,' " she tells PEOPLE.
"But her sisters, Meredith and Valerie Estess, came to me when I was first on ER and said, 'We can't sit back and watch our sister die.' "
With Margulies' help, the sisters then launched the non-profit Project A.L.S. in 1998 and began raising funds for scientific research to find a cure.
