Friedreich’s Ataxia

What Is Friedreich’s Ataxia?

Friedreich’s ataxia (FA) is a debilitating, life-shortening, degenerative neuro-muscular disorder. About one in 50,000 people in the United States have Friedreich’s ataxia.

FA is a very rare and complex disease where a good amount of its affects harm your nerves, throwing off your hand-eye-condition and balance. (Hence why many of us use walkers, are in wheelchairs, or motorized scooters).

Its progression begins at your toes and progressively works up to your heart slowly diminishing the muscles in the body.
