We have joined Team FARA to redefine what is possible when we work together towards a common goal- treatments and a cure for Friedreich's ataxia (FA). Join us in supporting the urgent pace of the research. Donate. Together we will cure FA!
About one in 50,000 people in the United States have Friedreich's ataxia. Onset of symptoms can vary from childhood to adulthood. Childhood onset of FA is usually between the ages of 5 and 15 and tends to be associated with a more rapid progression. Late onset FA (LOFA) can occur anytime during adulthood. FARA is supporting research that will improve the quality and length of life for those diagnosed with Friedreich's ataxia and will lead to treatments that eliminate its symptoms.
