Nearly three million people live with a debilitating disease (with an odd name: Charcot-Marie-Tooth), that adversely affects every aspect of their lives. Although the disease was first identified more than 130 years ago, there are still no effective treatments or a cure. Not a single one. You can help us change that.
CMT is a genetic nerve disease that slowly takes away the ability of kids and adults to use their hands, arms, legs and feet. It gets worse every day and can lead to significant disability and even death.
The CMT Research Foundation (CMTRF) is the leading organization focused solely on discovering and developing treatments and cures for CMT by pursuing cutting-edge and unconventional approaches to research.
Thanks in part to CMTRF's efforts, more has been accomplished in the past five years to accelerate the search for a cure than ever before. Treatments are now within reach this decade if we keep up the momentum.
We need advocates like you to help ensure lifesaving CMT research continues and doesn't stall due to COVID-19 or a lack of funding. Sign the pledge to stand in support of the families who are counting on us and to hear more from the CMT Research Foundation.
