Many have never heard of ataxia. An estimated 150,000 individuals in the United States have this debilitating condition, a rare and often fatal neurodegenerative disorder. Symptoms include severe problems with coordination, balance, and speech. Altered vision, hearing, sensation, and various other medical problems are common. Ataxia is progressive, affects children and adults, manifests at any age, may be inherited, and there is no cure or effective treatment. Please come to show your support and have a great time.
