ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I have loss of balance and coordination. Slurred speech. Loss of fine motor skills and extreme exhaustion. I am diagnosed with Friedreich’s Ataxia, which is a very rare neuromuscular disease. I am one of 5000 in the US diagnosed with this disease and am advised there is no treatment and no cure. I am at high risk of diabetes and a life shortening heart condition. The disease progresses and will eventually rob me of my ability to walk and care for myself.
