We are fundraising to help support research for Friedreich’s ataxia (FA), a debilitating, life-shortening, degenerative neuro-muscular disorder.
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.
Please support our efforts to find treatments and a cure for FA!
