A World Without Ataxia.

  • New legislation important to our community and progress
  • Add more resources for the 65+ support groups
  • Educate our community about genetic testing including providing genetic counseling and testing for all those living with Ataxia 
  • Create a national, regional, and local Ataxia Awareness campaign to accelerate the understanding of Ataxia.
